Statements from clients:

Tantec more than capable

Tantec convinced us that the equipment was more than capable. Tantec were excellent throughout the project, from initial concept, through the design process where we considered numerous design changes to refine the tooling and into the FAT stage where they were professional, helpful, technically experienced and confident. When minor issues were encountered during FAT, the response was always positive and the solution was quickly implemented

Nick Parker

Operation Director, DB-Automation

Excellent Supplier

We can only say excellent. This supplier was very easy to deal with from the very first contact we made with the sales team to the delivery of well-made and on-time Corona equipment which we continue to be happy with, including the after-sales service. It was a pleasure for us to deal with Tantec’s teams, and the equipment they built for us has proven to be of good value.

Ezzat Iskander

President CEO, Phoenix Biomedical Products Inc., Canada

Long-term partnership

We have worked closely with Tantec for many years on various projects, and often used the Tantec equipment as part of our new developments and experiments. Having all the equipment from Tantec available in our lab makes our work faster and more efficient. The cooperation with Tantec has always been beneficial to both companies.
