GE Measurement & Control and Oceanscan sign distributor agreement


GE Measurement & Control has signed a distributor agreement for its Inspection Technologies product line with Oceanscan Limited of Aberdeen. The agreement between the two companies means Oceanscan will be the sole distributor of Inspection Technologies products in Scotland.

Robin Evans, the Country Sales Leader for Inspection Technologies in the UK, said: “For some time we have been looking for a partner who could provide a one-stop NDT shop in the important oil & gas segment based around Aberdeen, as well as the remainder of Scotland. Oceanscan has an outstanding reputation as an equipment supplier and the distribution of products is only the first step in a partnership that will see more services offered, which will greatly benefit GE Measurement & Control customers.”

Principally an equipment hire and service company, this is a new direction for Oceanscan, which will build on its strong customer relationships. “The Inspection Technologies range of products complements our present offerings and enables Oceanscan to be at the forefront with GE Measurement & Control in supplying and supporting emerging technologies, such as digital radiography,” said Jonathan Bancroft, Oceanscan Sales & Marketing Manager. “We have a high level of NDT expertise within Oceanscan, which will enable us to provide a first-class NDT equipment sales outlet alongside our existing hire business.”

Both companies are looking forward to working together to create an outlet able to support all the needs of their customers within the vibrant NDT community in Scotland.
