I wanted to share some feedback regarding the recent washer installation in Vietnam. As you know I’ve been involved in several washer installations spanning multiple decades and this installation set a new standard for perfection. ITS Shanghai assembled and shipped the machine within the advertised delivery, Installation and assembly was completed in 2 weeks and start up was uneventful. Overall fabrication quality is excellent. The attention to detail for fabrication and assembly is very apparent. Start up and commissioning was uneventful, I couldn’t ask for anything more. Support from ITS was excellent.
Feedback I have from the plant for operation is very positive. Their production volume came up to normal levels within a few weeks of startup. To date there have been no washer related can quality issues. Nice job!

I have been part of several can lines projects greenfields and replacements, and most of the time we chose ITS washers, pin ovens and Inside Bake Ovens.
My reasons are:
• The rate price / quality is very good.
• They offer their products equipped as detailed customer preferences .
• They are very reliable.
• The service they provide is prompt and good
• In case of failures they respond quick and with good support.

The ITS team was very professional from Negotiations to installation. We asked ITS to build a Washer to our specifications and ITS was flexible and helpful and met our conditions. The Washer was delivered on time as promised and installation and commissioning went very well. ITS met our expectations and delivered on what was agreed upon. The team and I are very happy with the ITS Washer on our new line.
