"If you are thinking of purchasing a laser cutter then I would strongly urge you to consider approaching Technology Supplies. Having sourced funding for a new machine I had approached the business with my usual expectation of a quick quote followed by the predictable pressure from the sales representative noting that it was a 'one-off' deal or that 'stocks were low'. However, my experience with Technology Supplies could not have been further from this well rehearsed practice.
Following an initial conversation with Alex regarding our needs, he put together a package detailing a number of potential lasers that would meet our requirements and be within our price range. This was followed a week or so later when he talked through the different options and the pros and cons of the various machines, most importantly detailing these within our context as a Design & Technology department. Having then had sufficient time to consider the options, I was able to call him back before placing the order to talk through our needs with regards to timescales and training - all of which was dealt with in a professional and efficient manner.
Following the processing of the order, Alex continued to keep in touch with myself regarding timescales for delivery and meeting our training needs right up until the day we received the machine and our training, which just like the purchase process was fantastic. Clear, concise, well-paced, informal and exceptionally supportive; the training met the needs of our group of staff who all had varying degrees of experience with using a laser cutter and the associated software. Even when we had to call the business a few days after the installation with a few software issues, the staff could not have been more helpful. An excellent experience and one that stands out from the majority of education resource companies."
David Dodds - Inveralmond Community High School, Principal Teacher Curriculum - Technologies
"As a Design and Technology subject leader I have relied on Technology Supplies for over 25 years to provide machinery, tools and materials. They are my first port of call when we need new equipment, advice on existing purchases or potential service and repair. More recently we needed a new laser cutter with a limited budget and they were able to supply us the exact machine we wanted at a price we could afford which they delivered and set up in record time. Not only that, they collected our old machine and delivered it (over considerable distance) to its new owner. I really can’t fault the customer service and support and, while I am unlikely to see another 25 years teaching D&T, I fully expect to be using Technology Supplies for the remainder of my time in the classroom."
P Woodward - Head of Creative Arts at Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate
“Our experience with Technology Supplies has been outstanding. They provide a fantastic service to International Schools and have made the process of purchasing subject specific materials problem free. They provide excellent advice on equipment and materials, so that you purchase the correct type of products for your school’s needs. They also back up this knowledge with a range of support services that are easily accessible and personal. Technology Supplies provide a service that make you feel like a valued customer, even though you are thousands of miles away!”

“With the support of Technology Supplies Ltd we have developed two very well resourced workshops, office and design studio as well as a Food Technology room with extensive equipment to cover all aspects of our DT curriculum.”
Justin Harris – Head of Design Technology - Jerudong International School, Brunei
“It can be a challenge to find DT resources when teaching abroad but Technology Supplies Ltd eliminates this issue. Their international service is essential to keep our department up to date and at the forefront of DT. From ordering to maintenance their support has been excellent.”
Kevin Bloomer – Design Technology and Art Subject Leader - Doha British School
“Prior to moving to the British School Al Khubairat, my previous school used Technology Supplies as one of the main suppliers for materials, resources and tooling. When moving to the Middle East 15 years ago quality materials were difficult to source. I contacted TSL and they were more than willing to help. Technology Supplies have been our main supplier and continues to provide a quality service. The range of resources and TS's product portfolio continues to grow and fulfils virtually all our needs for the teaching of Textiles, Resistant Materials, Graphics Products and Product Design to A Level. I would thoroughly recommend TS to supply all your department needs”
Aubrey Roberts - Assistant Headtecher and Head of Design and Technology, The British School Al Khubairat, Abu Dhabi.
"Thank you for the excellent customer service, value for money and quality products. Best of all, we didn’t have to wait, like we have previously experienced with the "middle man" importers. We really appreciate the hassle you had to go through, but hope to make it worth your while by doing business direct with you in the future."
