About Us

     
 
Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.

Installation of new HPC compressor

"Thorite have been our service agent for over 30 years & we value their partnership. Our old Hydrovane 715 compressor had come to the end of its working life & their advice on the supply / installation of a new HPC compressor to suit of current needs was first class. We cannot rate our Thorite engineer Stuart Dixon highly enough, his attention to detail & professional approach is second to none. From quotation to supply & commissioning was under a week.

5 compressor across 2 factories in N.Yorksire.
 

"Poor communication when compressors are due for maintenance.

One compressor ended up being 2 months & over its “service due” time, company was aware of this?

Only stayed with this company as maintenance engineer. Stuart Dixon is extremely good."
