Thank you Jay for your incredible customer service! As a business owner myself, I try to give great customer service and always hope I receive great service. You and your company did not disappoint me! I ordered a creep feed panel which I was having a difficult time getting from a local supplier. I took a leap of faith thinking that since your website was easy to navigate and seemed very professional. I made the right decision. It was shipped immediately and received lightening fast at no extra cost to me. Your follow through is outstanding, from phone call follow up to the email and the mailed invoice as well as the quick ship, it was a sincere pleasure doing business with you. Thank you again! Most kindly,
