I am taking this opportunity to share my gratitude for Zach’s courteous service work on our uPrint SE plus. I enjoy just chatting with him. He’s a super nice guy and very knowledgeable, and able to assist me with GrabCad as well during this past visit.

I wish to inform you of my satisfaction with Zach’s work – beyond satisfaction – more like impressed with his professionalism. He kept in close touch with me to arrange his visit and offered options for upgrading and improving our CAD / 3D printing programming.

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful customer service/support I received today from one of your workers, Matt Campbell.

In my 30 or so years of teaching, I have never been as impressed with a salesperson/company as I was today.

Matt worked diligently, for hours, putting together all of my new equipment without pause. It would have taken me days to do what he did in a matter of a few hours. What a polite and hard working young man that you have working for you!

Thank you again for the excellent service. It was greatly appreciated.”

AET Labs provides excellent  sales and service: I can call them anytime I need assistance. They are my best source for equipment: no pressure, affordable and innovative solutions, flexibility, excellent follow through. The bottom line is that AET is just a great company to work with.

In 13 years of teaching, I have not found a  better vendor  to work with. They do not try to oversell  and they back up their sales with excellent service.
