Client Feedback

“For a charity like Derian House that relies on donations to provide vital services, spending some of that revenue on external providers is always a carefully considered decision. Eric Wright Group has always offered us excellent quality and genuine value in the past and we are already starting to see the benefits of our new contract with facilities management in terms of maintenance savings, compliance, operational efficiency and staff development. We look forward to experiencing further return on investment as the contract continues.”
