About Us

The Ashgate Quality of Care Promise

The team at Ashgate prides itself on providing complete technical support from our highly qualified engineering staff. Full product training is included in our pricing, and for our larger Fastbind systems, we can extend training over two or three visits, as you require. Unlike some other companies, we do not simply box our Fastbind systems and send them out by courier. Although Fastbind systems are simple to operate, the team at Ashgate will provide you with a complete training and support package tailored to your requirements so that you can get the maximum benefit from your new Fastbind system. That’s the Ashgate promise.
