Customer Rapport

Over recent years, with the privatization of many electrical utilities, together with the high levels of utility staff attrition, early retirement and the ubiquitous staff downsizing, the remaining utility engineers have come to rely more and more on their most dependable and knowledgeable representative contacts, both for product information and for general assistance. The staff of Charlton & Connolly have long recognized this and have built on such rapport, establishing their position and serving the customer with diligence, commitment and reliability.
