We recently started a business relationship with MET Labs for specialized testing on some customer cables.  These are very large and heavy cables on reels, and transportation and logistics challenges were plenty for us – along with shipping expense. 
 
We requested that MET Labs perform the testing on-site here at Control Cable.  We’ve done this twice now and I’m extremely pleased with the results and customer focus.   Your project manager has handled the details very well and your technician is an absolute pleasure to work with and also is a wonderful reflection of your company
