Product Manager

Thank you and everyone at Tapecon for the hospitality and interest in working with us. We were both very impressed with the quality of work that is produced at Tapecon. One thing that I always look for when touring a plant is the level of engagement of the men and women on the floor with visitors. I noticed very clearly that there is ownership and pride among your team and I believe that success only comes when these elements exist coupled with enthusiasm and I was glad to see that yesterday.

President

I am very glad to have a vendor like your company. I received the automatic shipment notification for the 100 pieces. Once I saw the email, I immediately advised the people involved in order to import the part today. I am very glad to have a vendor like your company.
