Why Choose WBS?

Whenever I need to buy new kit this is the place to go. Wendy and her team have excellent knowledge of the equipment they supply, access to information from manufacturers about the kit and an attitude to genuine customer service that is not often found in today's globalised corporate world. I have dealt with all the main UK broadcast suppliers and buying from Wendy's is by far the best experience.
