Important information about Covid-19

We Are Embracing the ‘New Normal’!

Most Quantum Design UK and Ireland staff members are still working remotely. However, we are using the offices to successfully and safely keep up with deliveries. Our Service and Support Team is also able to carry out field visits now. The preferred method of contact is email. And we can have ‘face-to-face’ meetings via Microsoft Teams – just get in touch, set up a time and we’ll send you a link. It couldn’t be simpler and works well for our customers and suppliers. Please see our list of contacts here.
