Customer Testimonials

“Doug was extremely helpful getting me set up in our new tool shop. It has been over 20 years since I was a machinist, so I relied on him to provide me what I needed to get things up and running. Doug came to Logoplaste a couple of times to help me get mixtures right and test some samples for us. I am looking forward to working with Doug & CLC in many other areas of Logoplaste nation-wide.”
