Testimonials

“Steve, Alison,

Just a brief note to say it’s been a pleasure working with you guys on the DPD, Network 46 Project over the course of the last 12 months.

I visited the site earlier in the week and it looked excellent.

Hopefully there will be plenty of other opportunities for UMC and Quantum to work together again in the future.

Many Thanks again,

Matthew Salanyk

Director”
