What they say

"During the process of readmission, Plutus PowerGen found the DMH Stallard team to be highly commercial in their outlook while actively navigating us around and through the various legal processes. This, when combined with their responsiveness to our specific needs, allowed us to build a highly effective team meaning we met a challenging timeframe."
