….. this artisan workmanship has been possible due to design considerations made in detailed 3D CAD shop drawings and
perfected before manufacture, then used to programe the most modern CNC machineryavailable.
…. I have found Stuart Wilson and his firm to be honest, resourceful, lateral thinkers,
obliging, I have no hesitation in recommending Advanced Engineering Services for any job, time
would allow them to consider.
