I also would like to take this time to thank each and every one at Trace (even the Green Bay Packer Fan in shipping) for being such great business partners. Your customer service is beyond excellent. Each and every time I have made contact with you, no matter who I get to talk to, I am always taken care of with a level of individual customer service that is beyond expectations. You Guys Rock! Keep up the good work. Thank you again.

Thanks. I believe that your company makes it very simple to take the sample and send it in. Even a redneck can do it following your instructions. I did have Doug Hall from Wayest Safety do training on pulling the samples the first time. He highly recommended you and that was good enough for me. Your company proved itself very quickly to me with your quick turnaround. Ms. Lindsey with your company was a big help to me.
