What Our Clients Say

Kelly - I wanted to drop an email to thank you and your team but especially Rebecca for her amazing support through the Brexit and current pandemic. The swift delivery of the nitrile gloves provided us reassurance that our team will have the correct PPE to continue to do their very important roles for the next couple of months and more. Not just the gloves but with all my orders and questions, they are always handled promptly, professionally and I can rely on an excellent service from you all at Datesand.
- Jonathan Griffin - Marshall I would like to send out a big thanks for yesterday. We were impressed with the warehousing, and helpfulness and openness of all staff we interacted with. We look forward to a long relationship in the future.

Charles River Labs - Riley Of all the suppliers I’ve been in contact with I’ve never been so well taken care of as I was by the team at Datesand .
University of Cambridge – Vet School – Chris Brown - Facility Manager "Since we transferred our business to Datesand a few years ago we have found the customer care to be first class.
