"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."

“Technology Supplies has visited on numerous occasions, enabling me to “test drive” and compare machines, given invaluable advice not just on equipment but the sustainability and, importantly, were honest about long term running costs, matched and beat all other competitors, and most importantly understood they were working with a school that doesn’t have a large budget.”

“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”

"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.
