Ashtead Technology Opens New Instrument Rental Office

August 10, 2009

INDIANAPOLIS - Rental instrumentation specialists Ashtead Technology has announced the opening of a new Indianapolis office to further enhance the level of service to its customers across Indiana and Michigan.

The facility will carry the complete range of the latest monitoring instrumentation that clients have come to expect from Ashtead Technology, backed by 24-hour support every day, the advantages of local pick up and drop off and substantially lower shipping charges.

In addition to offering a complete rental solution, the Indianapolis office will provide a full range of calibration and repair services and a wide array of consumable products to support the growing local environmental monitoring, nondestructive testing and remote visual inspection markets.

Office Manager Dave Burnett explains, “The new Indianapolis office will be manned by a team of highly-skilled technicians and offer many major benefits to both existing and new Ashtead Technology customers by delivering an exceptional level of service combined with quality rental equipment adhering to the same ISO 9001 standards to which all of our existing offices operate. The opening represents further investment in the company and a deepened commitment to our customers.

“There are a number of high-profile air quality projects taking place in Indiana, with Superfund Recovery Packages in Jacobsville and Kokomo, which are creating a strong demand for environmental monitoring instrumentation. The new office will also mean that the sewer and pipe inspection sector will finally have a local rental resource.”

Ashtead expects that the rental of environmental monitoring instrumentation will account for more than half of the total branch sales due to the large number of environmental consultancy firms within the area. However, nondestructive testing and remote visual inspection instrumentation is also expected to be in high demand.

The new office will be located at Park 100 7144 Zionsville Rd., Building 106, Indianapolis, IN 46268, and staff can be contacted at (800) 242-3910.
