A quote from Mr Speer about the services offered by Speer Compression Systems.

"We do not do everything at once. We try not to over commit ourselves. We like to work with a few companies and offer most of these services to them over time as the need arises. I am NOT an engineer however I have a lot of experience and will immediately call for the support of engineers if the need arises.

We try to draw on our experience in many areas to develop cost effective solutions and new approaches to challenges, then work with our clients to see the ideas come to fruition. We strive to ensure that all of our clients are satisfied and believe they have received value for money."
