Testimonials

A selection of quotes from Scholars, Apprentices, Freemen and Liverymen.

As a student, membership of the Company has given me access to a wealth of experience and knowledge. I have found it a friendly and supportive environment and the events and presentations have enabled me to pursue my interest in scientific equipment.

I strongly support the ethos of the Company and the work they do to encourage instrument makers of the future, particularly through their mentoring programme, awards and support of schemes like the Arkwright scholarships. We all remember the person or scheme that played a pivotal role in us choosing instrument making, in one of its many forms, as a career path. Paying this forward to the next generation is an obligation we should embrace joyfully and wholeheartedly.

The livery is made up of highly knowledgeable and experienced technologists and therefore represented a pool of resource that could be called on at need. Especially in the area of Safety, I felt much more comfortable talking to customers, knowing that I had the Livery to fall back on, if needed.
