We commissioned our whole brew house with BRITANX a few years ago. The team were extremely helpful, happy too build to our specifications while also suggesting helpful improvements. Part of the reason we chose Fabdec was that they were very happy for us to visit their factory and see our kit in various stages of manufacture, which convinced us that we could expect really high quality vessels. Overall, we’ve been really happy – and any queries we had were answered very quickly and professionally.
