Transcat, a global distributor of professional grade test, measurement and calibration instruments and accredited provider of calibration, parts inspection, production model engineering and repair services, has partnered with Flir Systems, a provider in the design and manufacture of thermal imaging infrared cameras. This partnership expands Transcat's product offering to include Flir's handheld infrared cameras and thermal imagers and reinforces Transcat's reputation for being a distributor of the finest test and measurement brands.
With a strong presence in the pharmaceutical and FDA-regulated, industrial manufacturing, energy and utilities and chemical processing industries, Transcat will market and distribute Flir's infrared cameras and thermal imagers to its approximate 17,000 US and Canadian customers to expand both companies' market share and value offering. “Transcat is excited to launch this new partnership. FLIR has long been the leader in infrared technology and we are pleased to be a major part of aggressively growing the market for Flir's handheld industrial cameras,” commented Charles P. Hadeed, President, CEO and COO of Transcat.
Flir provided the use of infrared cameras for industrial application over 50 years ago and has developed a broad portfolio of thermographic cameras that will now be available to the Transcat target audience. “Transcat is joining Flir at an exciting time in the life of our distribution program. Transcat is well known for supplying premier hand held instruments and Flir is the world provider in infrared cameras with a new broad line-up of cameras designed for sale through distribution. We are excited about this partnership and are looking forward to growing business together with Transcat,” said Tom Scanlon, VP of Americas Thermography, Flir.
