  • Tritton has been working with EMS Group since 2010 and I am 100% satisfied with the service. Their communication is faultless. When I ring up and need to know when I can get a cylinder or labour, or anything, the Workshop Manager, Pete, answers me direct and immediately. We always know where we stand and there are no surprises. They’re basically perfect.

  • We have been using EMS for all of our mechanical repairs, servicing and breakdowns for a couple of years now. The team are really good to deal with and we are more than happy to recommend them to our clients. Having one place in town that can look after auto electrical, hydraulic, truck, plant and general servicing is what we need and EMS gives us that.
