After experiencing Controls Groups' RAPID customer service - for me it was a no brainer to invest in the Automax unit.

 Whenever we have had any issue we call and a remote-in session allows the technical team of CONTROLS to log in and help us figure out what is going on.

Controls service has been outstanding. From both a technical and sales standpoint. Controls' staff has gone above and beyond to accommodate any unique setup requests and to troubleshoot when needed.

As an education institution covering principles and methods of materials testing, the testing machine that we acquired from CONTROLS met and exceeded our expectations.

I am really impressed with the quality of the equipment. I am used to seeing big wooden boxes that always get damaged on site or inside the vehicles. This is not the case with your TRL DCP! The metal case with foam inserts is a nice bonus and will help massively in keeping the equipment fit for purpose for many years to come! I am extremely happy with my purchase from yourselves and will be placing more orders going forward!

Hayden Fountain, Geotechnical Quality and Operations Manager at MA2
