How did they get in touch?

Ms Galina Le found VTOPS through google, and took interest in the machines and filling line solutions after watching videos of VTOPS products on Youtube.

Mr Chang said that the factory had not received Russian clients before, but there were clients from Russia who purchased Vtops machine online. The latest client sent an email to ask about the quality of the machine to one of the previous clients who commended VTOPS product quality and after-sale services.

During their inspection, the engineer nodded his head for several times when he read the final results. The translator said Mr Rogalev Iurii was quite satisfied. Mr Chang added that the client was strict with precision and only a error of 5 grams was allowed.
