Michael Taylor, Trustwide Hotel Services Officer (Portering) said: “Elmtronics are a very professional and knowledgeable company that work alongside the hospital Estates Department. From first point of contact with Elmtronics, the staff were efficient and professional and have an exceptional set of expertise. They quickly recognised our needs and were very knowledgeable about the infrastructure and equipment that was required.

“The quality of the EV charging equipment supplied by Elmtronics is remarkable and meets all of the trust’s needs. The customer service is excellent and nothing seems to be a problem.”
