“Over the last 8 Years CISDs and formally the PDC has given me and the companies I worked for a significant competitive advantage. The technical staff have a high customer focus and have delivered consistency to prove out concepts or analyse issues on existing and new materials. Their reliability, confidentiality, knowledge, expertise and commitment to turn around projects within quoted times always make them my 1st choice for when I outsource chemical analysis, mechanical analysis and product testing etc.
