The relationship with our sales agent is great, nothing is ever too much hassle for Mike, it’s as easy as just picking up the phone and asking for a few pallets and it’s done.?
She added: ?The products that stand out for us are the stepping stones, we do very well with these and they are definitely a top seller.?
