  • Free staff training covering fabrication, adjustment and maintenance of our fittings.

Conditions of warranty:

  • The liability of Maco (U.K.) under this guarantee shall be limited to the cost of repair of the component or to the invoice value of the component replaced whichever is the lower and the company shall not be liable for any consequential loss or damage howsoever caused.
