|"I wanted to take the time to write
back and tell you how impressed I am once again with the service
we get from Pea Soup. In our operations, we deal with multiple
suppliers and sometimes, the items or services supplied are not
the most expensive or revenue-generating for those suppliers.
But they mean a lot to our show and to the artistic integrity
of our acts. Therefore, receiving such an efficient service makes
a great difference.
Thank you for the always quick response time,
and for the thorough information. It is a real pleasure to work
Head of props, Cirque du Soleil
|"With our Dragon having been in heavy use
for two years we found ourselves requiring a rapid full service
to fulfill a critical last minute filming schedule.
With less than 24hrs notice I was invited to the factory workshop
where Kerry, who was waiting for my arrival & had dropped
everything to assist me, stripped down and serviced the unit whilst
providing hands on training for myself.
Customer care like this is well above & beyond the normal
and a very rare thing these days.
Well done chaps from a happy customer.”

National Space Centre, Leicester, England
