Also on our website there is a CONTACTS area where you can write any communications regarding the deliveries received. In the event of bad management, our quality department takes note and informs the customer how the dispute has been resolved.

The same thing at the time of QPetLab direct delivery, the customer can immediately evaluate the service received by placing an X on one of the three smilies (emoticons). In case of dissatisfaction, the document is sent to the quality office for the analysis of the case and for the information to the customer. The opinion of our customer is very important for us to be able to improve.
