Instrumentation specialist Ashtead Technology is delighted to announce the opening of two new facilities to further enhance service levels in North America.

The company has recently opened new branches in Baltimore, MD, and St. Louis, MO, to increase access to its comprehensive fleet of environmental monitoring instrumentation for applications such as hazardous waste investigation and water quality testing. The new branches will also stock essential NDT equipment to meet the demands of local inspection companies.

Customers will now benefit from 24/7 support by skilled Ashtead Technology technicians, local pick up and drop off, and substantially lower shipping charges.

Dave Burnett, Ashtead Technology's regional general manager for the territory, said: "The market for rental instrumentation is increasing as customers recognize the need to access the latest technology without the capital cost of ownership and at Ashtead we continue to invest in the resources necessary to meet this growing demand. The opening of two new facilities displays our determination to offer the most advanced technologies in the market through an extensive national network."

Contact details are 883 Airport Park Road, Suite D, Glen Burnie, MD 21061 (Baltimore 410 766 2874) and 2627 Metro Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63043 (314-344-1079).

With coast to coast operations Ashtead Technology now has more regional offices than any other Environmental, NDT and RVI supplier.
