"In 2014 PAT supplied and installed 2 LAWO audio consoles in the ABC's RIPPONLEA studios. The entire project was completed with military precision. Everything on time with no surprises. Thanks to Patrick's 'get it done' attitude his team of wiremen and engineers produced a great result within the required timeframe even with regular scope changes. The invoices and reports were always thoroughly detailed and promptly supplied. Meredith in the PAT office was a pleasure to deal with. I have no hesitation in recommending PAT for your next project."
