Business as usual

It's looking ever more likely that no one will escape the impact of COVID-19 and Ultamation send our best wishes to all of our clients, partners, employees and their families.  Based on the advice from the UK government, Ultamation will be attempting to limit potential exposure to the virus and reduce the risk of propagating it further so we have instructed all employees to work from home.  Fortunately, the nature of much of our business allows us to continue with our normal routine so we are operating as normal wherever possible, but please bear with us if support cases take a little longer to respond to.

Another CEDIA Best Integrated Home win!

Last Thursday, alongside Stephen Nevison of Intuitive Homes, we made our way to the Victoria and Albert Museum, the prestigious venue of this year’s CEDIA awards.
