Seatronics, an Acteon company, is the first to sign up to enhanced accreditation as a supplier of third party calibrations to the ROV and survey communities, globally. The enhanced accreditation is provided by Valeport; the UK’s leading manufacturer of oceanographic, hydrographic and hydrometric instrumentation.
Seatronics has established calibration facilities in Aberdeen, Singapore and Houston. The original calibration facility was established in Aberdeen in 2003 to manage Seatronics’ extensive range of Valeport assets. Since then, the facility has been extended to handle increased throughput and to support the growing demands of Seatronics’ customers requiring local third party calibrations. Following the success of the operation in Aberdeen, Seatronics replicated the facility in Singapore in 2005, and Houston in 2008.
Derek Donaldson, vice president global operations, Seatronics, said, "Collaborating with Valeport has been key to the success of our calibration facilities across the Seatronics group. We are committed to working locally with our clients, offering asset management in a timely and affordable manner, which is of critical importance in a challenging market.”
Kevin Edwards, sales and marketing manager, Valeport, said, "Monitoring third party calibration facilities that provide services for Valeport products is important to us. We have to know that our own standards and performance expectations are maintained, which is achieved through this annual audit scheme. Seatronics has demonstrated its capability well, and we are very confident Seatronics provides a qualified and accurate service.”
