TestimonialsSee what our customers say
"My experience of working with FTL could be used as a case study in supplier relations. At every stage, the communication between customer and vendor was been nothing short of exemplary. Their ability to work proactively to reduce any risks to the project made the development we worked on run smoother than any other I have been involved in.
The product they created has passed all tests with flying colours, which has helped improve our profit margins and given confidence in our programme of works, as well as deliver long term benefits beyond what was initially required. would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone."
Sam Cooney, Project Manager (PJM2) - Retrieval Robotics Delivery - Ocado Group PLC
"I have known some of the sales and design engineers for 25 years or more. Their level of expertise has been maintained. The help and assistance when we are looking at sealing arrangements is invaluable, and they are always quick to respond. We use FTL products for all pump assembly sealing requirements, for both rotary and dynamic applications associated with oil lubrication and water hydraulics. I have no hesitation in recommending FTL to our customers and contacts when the occasion arises, and there is always good feedback. They have excellent customer facing engineers with a dedication to making sure the customer gets a product that will work - particularly in relation to heavy industry in the UK."
Engineering Project Manager for an established global high pressure systems OEM
"As a company we have worked with FTL for a number of years, if not over a decade. I myself have had the pleasure of working with them on behalf of the Supply Chain team. One of the great benefits of working with FTL are the stock holding agreements we have in place. This makes it easier for us to know the stock is ready when needed, and for FTL to be able to plan production. Once a SHA is running low we will always be notified and asked if a new agreement is required. All the team at FTL are helpful, always provide a great level of service and respond in a timely manner. I would highly recommend FTL as a supplier."
