Customer Reviews

Tom LickersWindhorse ScreenprintingSt Anns, CANADA
Eight months ago I decided that it was time to upgrade my textile printer to automatic. I love my Sportsman. While installing my compressor and chiller, my air technician mentioned how impressed he was with the superior caliber of the air fittings on the Sportsman. It made me feel even more confident that I chose an "entry level" automatic with such great quality. Of course using it daily for over half a year was the real test and I am happy to say that it has run flawlessly.

I'd also like to mention the awesome service and support I received from Michael Walker of M&R in Canada and from Toronto distributor FH & Sons.

I would not hesitate to recommend M&R to any shop looking for equipment that is cutting edge, affordable and reliable and has a network of people that stand behind the name M&R.
