The variety of SMR’s work load has always been dictated by it’s customers. It is this that we are most proud of. As technology has developed and the variety of equipment and OEM’s has increased, customers have looked to us to provide key solutions. SMR has analyzed and developed repair techniques and test procedures to ensure that customers receive a service for unique products that no one else has been able to repair.
Although this is not always successful and can increase our service levels, we have developed well founded relationships with our customers who appreciate our commitment to fix.
Although successful in providing overall repair solutions for I.T. equipment, we intend to develop extensively our component level repair service for Notebooks and generic boards to the corporate market.

Component Level Repairs
SMR's workshop philosophy is to 'repair to component level, which effectively means that wherever possible, we will carry out a true repair on the fault to 'fit for purpose' specification. This avoids extra costs and re-quotes to the customer, which distort the meaning of fixed pricing. We believe quotes are a necessary part of this business but only when every effort has been applied to fix at this level, or damage has been sustained.
SMR endeavors to provide a repair service on volume work which ensures that we are competitive within the market place. Our customer base includes a number of large Maintenance, Distributor and Repair companies in the UK. We are proud of such associations as it clearly demonstrates our presence in the market as a high quality center and our service commitment to the corporate market.
We have reduced the cost of notebook repairs (board and complete) from our standard pricing. Based on volume we can provide component level repairs @£90 complete or board.
Standard pricing is our provision to customers sending low volume work. This however does not affect the service levels we agree to provide and does not impair the quality of workmanship that such customers receive.
All our customers are important.
N.B. SMR endeavors to provide a repair within our own center, however certain product does exist which due to technical experience and low volume’s we outsource to reputable companies.
SMR has always found itself featuring heavily in the background of outsourced repair loops. In most cases indirectly.
We believe it is now the right time to bring our company to the attention of the market and provide our component level repair service direct. We seek to build strong relationships with leading distributed I.T. companies, repair center's and supplier’s through our core business for notebooks and generic boards.
We hope that our quality, expertise, commitment and drive will outweigh our size.
