Don’t take our word for it. Our customers say it best.
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you and the folks at Mercatus International for the excellent work you did on our recent Engineering Laboratory remodeling project. From the beginning, you and your team took the time to thoroughly understand our technical requirements, as well as understand our vision for the function and operation of this new lab. Your team’s extensive experience with lab configuration and space utilization were invaluable in helping us to achieve an optimal layout. Additionally, I believe the quality of the Symbiote lab furniture you installed is second to none. It has been a pleasure working with a company that takes the time to effectively perform all of the legwork to insure that there are no surprises and that the job comes out right. Our goal was to build a world-class engineering lab. With Mercatus International’s help, we have achieved that goal.
The Symbiote lab furniture has been working very well. As anticipated these workbenches addressed our concerns about space limitations and equipment needs.
With the amount of wear and tear that an educational facility sees, we were happy that we came across Shield Casework. Not only is it extremely durable, but we were impressed with the interior construction which has no seams and is easy to clean. In the end, we had a great looking project and a happy client.
Our school was able to purchase an older church building this past spring and we have been working on retro-fitting it to accommodate over 200 students ever since. We received a generous donation to upgrade our junior high/high school science lab and immediately began the design process. Having many years collectively of teaching science under our belts, we two science teachers knew exactly what we wanted. And what we wanted did not exist as pre-fab items plus we had a challenging space to put it all in. So we contacted Bill Rathsburg, with Mercatus to help with our design. Bill came on site several times through the entire process to advise, show us options, and talk us through the process. He was the conduit between the design team and us and kept in constant communication. Bill was very professional and listened well to our needs and desires and then helped make them a reality. Upon install time, Jon Schaffer and Darren Lavery were an excellent team. They were extremely efficient and competent in their work. They were also creative and patiently allowed us to make some on-site changes to better suit our needs. They worked well within the constraints we had as a school regarding times to be on campus without interfering with our instructional times. Jon and Darren returned on site in a timely manner once additional parts came in to complete the job. They maintained a neat work area and left our new science lab in pristine shape. We could not be more pleased with the outcome of our science lab. It has improved productivity, increased independence for our students, and provided a safe environment to teach science. The Mercatus team comes highly recommended by our school and we will have no hesitation to use them again when we expand our fine arts department.
About two years ago, we had the great opportunity to build a new lab from the ground up. After reviewing other lab-bench products and service teams, we went with Mercatus International due to their reputation and quality product. The design team helped us determine appropriate bench configurations and materials. After our initial build-out, the lab team was so satisfied, I had no question about continuing to work with the Mercatus Team on designing our recent expansion and I am thrilled with the outcome. The install team was professional and courteous and made sure all our needs were met. We owe a large part of the success of our lab flow to the Mercatus Team. Thanks Mercatus International!
The highly versatile Symbiote furniture that has recently been installed by Mercatus International is already paying huge dividends. During the installation, I routinely asked end users to visit and comment on arrangement of frames, bench tops and cabinetry. During several such walkthroughs, it became apparent that slight modifications would be needed in order to maximize the utilization of spaces to best serve the researchers. These changes were made quickly and easily by the installation crews, averting problems down the road. The versatility and ease of interchangeability of these products is making my job easier both now and in the future. It has been a pleasure to work with the people from Mercatus International. They have been helpful at every step, and I would highly recommend them to others, and will use their services in the future when the need arises.
When we moved into our new facility we needed to upgrade our manufacturing and lab areas. Mercatus International introduced us to the Symbiote line and put together suggested configurations. We were surprised by the quality and features of the equipment at a very reasonable value. The staff at Mercatus provided expert help in design and placement, suggesting accessories and layouts. Their service was exemplary from introduction of the product to final delivery and setup. We continue to seek advice from them as we grow and our needs increase.
