"The hot plate that we purchased in 2010 works great and we didn't have anyproblems with it. Because of the good performance, we just ordered one more hot plate from you. In the future we will consider your company to purchase high quality equipment. " 
                                                                               D.F. (Machining services company)
"We received the hot plate unit that you manufactured for our press plate which you also mounted to it.  I wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the quality and workmanship of the unit.  You have exceeded my expectations.  As well, my boss was very excited when we uncrated it and had to immediately start to operate it.  He is very pleased with the quality and workmanship as well.  His comment was "now this was well done.  This is very nice.  This is the way it ought to be." 
   I hope you will communicate this to all involved in this project.  I wish every vendor I work with could meet your standard of excellence and workmanship.  I will keep you in mind for any future needs that arise and recommend you to my colleagues. 
  Thank you for a job well done".

"I've been using your model HP01212 hot plate for a while now. Works like a charm.  Using it for repairing PC boards where the procedure requires accurate and stable temperature control throughout the repair process.
I'd highly recommend this product to anyone.
