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.
