Comments from the Client


“Our relationship with Preens is very strong. They are very easy to deal with, flexible and it all just happens without any dramas. Invoicing is broken out by person and this means it is very transparent and easy to understand. When there are minor things to look at, they just get sorted. The key thing for us was having a genuine national partner that could align to where we have our branches. It’s a one-stop-shop. Wherever we are, Apparelmaster can sort us out. What Apparelmaster bought us is a much-improved service.”
