Trustworthy and accurate

, Engineer of 41m to 50m M/Y Harle - 12/09/2019-10:08
Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

I have worked with the Wikstrom Family (MMS) for eight years and they have performed several projects onboard Harle.

Their hardware and work has always been of extraordinary high quality.

Michael and his sons are very knowledgeable in the IT and AV field. I trust their opinion and they have always advised me well in choosing the best and most reliable AV/IT equipment to install onboard.

In September 2019 MMS installed our new Intellian 100NX VSAT Antenna. The installation was carefully planned in advanced and the installation and set up process took only one day.

I want to highlight the honesty and long-term business view of Michael Wikstrom, high values and standards that he has also engraved in his sons Erik and Daniel.

MSS this winter did a lot of upgrades on our vessel in regards to AV/IT I only have positive things to say about Michael, Daniel and Erik. They are always very helpful when I comes to remote support and trouble shooting. If you are looking to do upgrades to any AV/IT systems I can highly recommend these guys.

Any problems that come up they solve without fuss and their assistance out of hours whether it may be by phone or remotely is second to none. I would recommend MSS to any boat or Captain in the industry and look forward to continue using their services.
