AJ's has, and still provides exceptional service from start to finish to us at Amgueddfa Cymru. Andrew and Hannah's expertise and customer service helped tremendously, when pulling together a funding proposal for a brand new studio at one of our Museum sites. Their quick responses, detailed recommendations and willingness to make edits with a quick turnaround was incredible.

Fantastic service! Had a problem with an order, spoke to two people on the phone who communicated the problem to the other staff, and the problem was sorted within 24h and the product was delivered to me the next day. Really feels like a company that has your back when deadlines are tight. Thanks to Andrew and Jon for sorting this!
