We have updated our privacy policy in light of new data protection legislation coming into force on May 25th 2018. The GDPR replaces the EU directive and strengthens privacy protections in the EU and includes additional rights and responsibilities.

Our Privacy Policy applies to our website, our customer and supplier database and business transactions and our employee information.


We keep information on our customer database for the purpose of supplying our customers needs only. We do not share the information with any third party unless it is to comply with statutory regulations, or if the customer requires us to share contact details etc for the purpose of warranty repair, servicing or demonstration etc. with the customers consent.

The personal information we keep is as supplied by the customer, or is freely available by directory or on the internet.

  • trading name and address
  • telephone & fax numbers
  • email addresses
  • contact name and details
  • other information relevant to customer for example - quotes, site visitor rules etc.
