”My special thanks to you and your team for the wonderful job you did on the H&M Brighton Project. It is a joy for me to work with such well organised supplier.”
When a bulk liquid storage provider contacted us with an emergency spillage, it was down to Acumen to get a resolution as quickly as possible. Acumen received the emergency call at 12 noon and our professional and efficient team completed the job by 15:30pm the very same day. Our satisfied customer commented ‘’Your response time was exceptional!”
“Acumen provided us with an enclosed skip for asbestos waste on a high profile site in Nottingham. The staff were very helpful, as was the driver who was glad to accommodate our need for skip delivery at 6am. Relevant disposal paperwork was promptly forwarded to our office after the skip was collected. Great service all round.”
