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 to keep up with our deliveries. The best way to contact us currently is by 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.

We will be reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will provide updates on our website and across our social media platforms: Twitter and LinkedIn.
