Universal Companies will continue to provide an excellent customer experience by growing our signature brands, expanding training and education, and bringing clients the latest trends and ideas to help their businesses grow. We have also recently unveiled a new mobile-friendly website that allows customers to track orders in multiple ways, more easily access education while shopping, research equipment specifications, and manage their accounts more efficiently.
