    Customer Driven

    Paul was employed as a sales rep for a large electronics distribution company, soon he became the person that customers relied on for help. That business was sold at the same time as a lot of electronics distributors moved out of the UK. At this point Paul's biggest customer approached him asking for help with procurement. Paul met their needs by setting up ESD to source computer consumables and components. It all started with a customer request. What can ESD, PCB Assembly Specialist, do for you?
