    Question Sequence of tenses in past

    I wonder if all the verbs are used in their proper tense forms here? or "were satisfied" should be in Perfect?

    We were told that they had been producing these machines for a few years and all the firms who had bought computers from them were satisfied with them.

    Thank you
