RSL NDT named as Sonatest’s exclusive distribution partner for Scotland


RSL NDT Ltd has announced that it is now the exclusive distributor for Sonatest’s conventional and advanced ultrasonic products in Scotland.

This new agreement includes the distribution of the hugely popular Sonatest D Series UT Flaw Detectors, as well as veo+ and prisma phased array, together with thickness gauges, couplants, Carestream X-ray film, transducers, WheelProbes and accessories. In addition, RSL will be offering the D Series range for hire as well as a repair and calibration service. To support this new ultrasonic product range, RSL is also committed to gaining UKAS 17025 approval for the calibration of ultrasonic flaw detectors.

RSL represents a number of high-profile brands within NDT and is delighted to become Sonatest’s distribution partner for Scotland. Scott Stephen, General Manager at RSL, said: “The Sonatest range of products is well known for high quality, superb performance, great design and ease of use. We are delighted to add them to RSL’s range and will use our sales force and key office locations to deliver Sonatest products throughout Scotland.”

RSL NDT Ltd provides quality equipment, service and support to the NDT industry in Scotland through its main office in Aberdeen and its sub-office, KenGed NDT, in Hamilton.

Since its formation in 1958, Sonatest has grown to become one of the most respected suppliers of ultrasonic NDT instruments in the world. Sonatest’s head office in Milton Keynes, UK, is a hub for global sales management and manufacturing.

Sonatest’s NDT products are designed to provide the user with a powerful tool that is easy to use and will withstand the harsh environments in which NDT is carried out. The Sitescan and Masterscan flaw detector ranges have an enviable reputation for reliability, whilst their user interface design is said to have set the industry standard. The veo+ and prisma flaw detectors reinforce Sonatest’s reputation for innovative technician-focused product development within phased array technology.

Sonatest’s focus on ‘simplicity, capability and reliability’ extends beyond product development programmes. Distributor excellence is paramount in managing successful customer relationships, from enquiry through to instrument maintenance, and Sonatest says it has full confidence in choosing RSL as its exclusive distributor in Scotland.

To mark this new agreement, an open day will be held at RSL’s main office in Aberdeen on Wednesday 7 December 2016 to demonstrate the Sonatest range of products. To book your place, tel: +44 (0)1224 822600 or email:
