Prompt Warranty Service

While we only select the highest quality products for our customers, even the best products will occasionally give rise to a warranty claim. We represent the customer’s interests, no the manufacturer’s. We insist that manufacturers make fair settlements on all warranty claims.

Customers with complaints are invited to contact the Penner Ombudsman in Steinbach at 204-326-1325.
