It paves the way for new product launches and further service benefits for customers, and is part of our drive to unlock the growth potential of the DX Express division.’’
Lloyd Dunn, Chief Executive Officer at DX, commented:“These new handhelds are just part of the large investment programme we are committed to in driving DX forward.
