Our goal has always been to keep our clients satisfied. We know what it takes to do that, and here at VPTS we are all committed to achieving it. Obviously we are all in business to realise a profit, but we view our customers as much more than opportunities for this, we will endeavor to work alongside you, tailoring our services to meet your distinct needs. We believe that every customer is unique, so there’s no way we can treat you like everybody else, so the only way to reach our goals is with personal attention, in a professional but friendly way and providing you with an excellent service.
Kevin Druce has been in the mail and print industry since 1980 when he started working with Alacra (Böwe UK). Having identified a need in the market, he started his own business in 1986. His extensive knowledge of Böwe equipment and aptitude for component level circuit board level repairs is second to none. Indeed many of VPTS’ clients are still running Böwe Guillotines first commissioned in the 1980’s. Kevin also has a wealth of experience in creating bespoke applications, his most prestigious probably the Booklet Making Systems for General Accident/Norwich Union to create their policy books.
Leon Stonebank started his career in the pressure washer industry in 1987, initially designing high pressure cleaning systems for the police, fire service, oil platform services and food industry. A switch of career in 1998 led him to MTS, where he played a lead role in developing and building electrical and mechanical mailing equipment, including software and vision systems. In 2004 he started his own business looking after mailing equipment and various vision systems, using his extensive PLC and software programming knowledge.
Kevin and Leon joined forces in 2009 creating VPTS LLP.
