Our customers

Vixen were extremely professional and very understanding of our needs and nothing was a problem for them, with a really personal service. They have provided us with an excellent quality product. We are very happy with the purchase.
Paragon Porsche, UK
This machine has improved the surface finish, safety, cleanliness levels and ease of use for the operator. Everything from delivery to installation went smoothly and the support from Vixen has been brilliant. We would definitely recommend Vixen every time!
Ethiopian Airlines, East Africa
Before purchasing the Aqua Wheelblaster, we used to prepare the wheels by hand which took 30 minutes, but now thanks to the Vixen machine it only takes 3 minutes! Contamination of any kind, do not stand a chance against the Aqua Wheelblaster. Only the best for our customers. The service we received was outstanding and the service engineer who came to Dortmund to set up the machine couldn’t have been more helpful. We can recommend the device without any problems.
Mr Reifen, Germany
The Aquablast 915 is perfect and at a great price point to process parts that require wet blasting. The availability of technical help in both the USA and England is a great benefit. We spend some time on Vixen's YouTube channel and found the videos very educational and full of resources.
