Freedom Liner Testimonials:

“Consistent with our focus on high-quality, low-cost products, we seek suppliers with the same characteristics as Gulbrandsen. Our company has been supplied various styles of liners by Freedom since September 1997. During that time Freedom has shipped tens-of-thousands of liners to Gulbrandsen without ever having a single defect.”
