About Us

At IPI we want to make sure you feel safe, comfortable and in control when making a decision on your measurement requirements. In this increasingly competitive industry, sales people will go to any length to discredit opposition products or companies, or use high pressure tactics to force you into a decision. Finding reputable knowledge and advice can be quite a challenge.

We have all been in a situation where we feel pressured by a sales person or unsure if their motives and recommendations are genuine. Quite often they could be trying to move old stock, meet a sales quota, or simply be offering a product which would see them paid a higher commission… rather than having your best interests at heart. Furthermore, many sales staff only have available to them a single product line or brand. No single brand can do everything well or be the best in every market segment.

At IPI we sell most of the major brands, giving our sales staff a wide range of resources to offer you. We will talk to you specifically about your application and how you intend to use the instrument to determine which products will meet your requirements. In most cases you will have the choice of several models and brands to choose from.

For those who are unsure or ill-equipped to make the decision by themselves we suggest undertaking quality training before making a purchase You may also want to seek the personal opinion of one of our qualified and experienced sales staff.

To ensure that you have ALL the tools to make an informed decision, ALL our staff are fully qualified, many with decades of real world experience in scientific test and measurement. With our in-depth knowledge of test and measurement equipment our goal is to provide you with accurate information so that you can make an objective decision for yourself.
