Many of our Client’s from around the world have expressed their gratitude and admiration for our products and services, here’s what some of them have said;

“May I say a massive thank you for your very kind and trusting gesture in sending me so much information on DHP1. I was agog with the detail and information included in the files. It is just the sort of stuff that I find so interesting. I am just so grateful you despatched the material for my perusal and that Clayton Equipment had the foresight to retain the material about DHP1. What a truly amazing and enigmatic machine.

Thank you again and I look forward to receiving my Clayton Equipment shirt which I will wear with pride” – Clayton Equipment Shop Customer, July 2020

He further said: his group enjoyed an informative talk from MD Clive Hannaford followed by a workshop tour, Clive and co-host Jessica were most welcoming and very open in terms of answering questions and allowing photography.
