“Whether I am looking for new or refurbished equipment or pieces and parts to repair my existing equipment, DRE has always been my first choice. Often, I will call and describe a part that I am looking for or e-mail a photo of the part and if DRE doesn't have what I need, they direct me to someone who does. My job would be significantly harder if it were not for DRE.”
