"We have worked with a whole host of people since we started in 2017, and by far, the best people we have worked with during that time was Forysths, and I never thought we would work with someone that matched them, but IC Filling Systems did, and in particular, Alessandro was a joy to work with, he was brilliant!! So good to learn from and a great teacher. He is an asset to the company! We would definitely recommend IC Filling Systems to whoever might ask."
