Our Testimonials

I am blown away as to how quickly and efficiently this has happened. I am sure we will be using you again. Excellent service!

As a Project Manager, it is vital to know that you can tap into a level of skills and expertise that can help the business navigate difficult requirements to help achieve customer satisfaction. With this in mind, the level of service that Catena offered is worthy of special merit as the design, manufacturing and testing of a special lifting frame was completed, not only on time, but also with a high degree of professionalism. This reflected very well on our business when we used the equipment on site to satisfy Health & Safety obligations as well as being a very useful rig to speed up our installation process. I would have no hesitation in using Catena again and by the same token, I would recommend Catena Ltd to anyone who can make use of the services that they offer.

We were very happy with the support and level of expertise received from Catena and would not hesitate to engage your services in the future.

A quick note to convey both my appreciation and thanks for those who have been involved in the job over recent weeks… The personal commitment shown over the last few days to complete the Testing and associated paperwork has been excellent. The collaborative working across numerous companies and Catena has been first class.

Thanks again for sorting out an engineer on such short notice!
