“We enjoy a good working relationship with LaForce and it really helps our business to rely on the expertise of the specification writers and technicians.”
Doug Page, Performa, Inc
Knowledgeable and Transparent
“When it comes to hardware, LaForce does an excellent job. I’ve worked with other distributors who are trying to upsell you or tell you they can do something when they really can’t. LaForce tells you what you need, they are not trying to push things on you. LaForce is transparent and knowledgeable.”
