Now more than ever, excellence in service levels will be why our customers continue to trade with us. We know that we have the right products and the right team in place, to truly put the customer first. We are a family business and give that personal touch to the service we provide, meaning that we can add value on top of providing the essential products our customers need.

I am very excited about what 2021 will hold for ERF.’
