Below I’m accumulating the websites of people or companies, we have actually used to; either carried out work or supplied materials and kit to “Allegrini” during her fit out. Both here in the UK and around the world when we travel.
I dont really want to go down the route of slagging off the ones that weren’t any good, or comparing one against the others, after all a company is only as good as its workers, so when their top guys move on, sometimes so do the skills and work ethic? sometimes not.
But so far so good……
