Thanks for the excellent services provided to HR Employment Bureau Ltd in terms of water compliance services. We have used Acquiesce Environmental Compliance Ltd to ensure that we were compliant in all aspects of our water supply. The service that we received from Callum and the team was second to none. Acquiesce had been recommended to me and I can see why. They dealt with my initial call in a very professional manner and arranged to visit our offices to conduct an initial survey. We found their rates very competitive, which saved us significant expenditure on this type of service. I would have no hesitation recommending Acquiesce Environmental Compliance, to any business looking for a smooth, affordable & satisfying solution to their current needs.
