What our customers say about us

‘In 2012, IPM were employed to ‘fit out’ a temporary workshop while our existing DT premises had some refurbishment work carried out. Once this building project was completed, IPM went on to update three of our existing workshops with the necessary equipment to carry out DT tasks in a school environment. Nick, who carries out the majority of practical tasks – but oversees all tasks – has proved to be extremely knowledgeable and competent in all matters, whether it be mechanical or electrical installation or any necessary legal requirements to meet current health and safety requirements. When Nick has subsequently come in to perform our annual inspections, he has provided an authoritative and objective assessment of whether our equipment and facilities are sufficiently work safe for use by staff and children associated with the school.’    DT Technician, an East London Academy

‘We have used IPM services for 2 consecutive years and are approaching our 3rd year with them. Having dealt with both Nick and Justine in person, I find them to be caring, courteous and professional people with a vested interest in their customers. Using local, thriving companies is something I always aim to achieve. IPM are exactly that. Easy to arrange service maintenance site visits and call outs. I have found Nick’s experience in the engineering manufacturing and installations industry to be of great help. Their rates are very modestly set and if all it takes to solve your problem is a word over the phone, he is more than keen to assist. A great local firm to do business with.’  Robert Hardcastle, Head Technician, Salendine Nook High School Academy

‘Very knowledgeable, great range of stock and helpful.’    R Priest, private customer
