New Christchurch show­room

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

Ac­cu­rate In­stru­ments (NZ) Ltd has opened a Christchurch branch at 4 Avenger Cres­cent, Wi­gram, in­cor­po­rat­ing a large show­room to dis­play the com­pany’s lat­est prod­ucts for safety, in­spec­tion and lev­el­ling, an ex­panded ser­vice and QA cen­tre and an on­site train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion fa­cil­ity.

The new de­vel­op­ment, lo­cated only a short dis­tance from the pre­vi­ous premises, will see the com­pany take what it says is a gi­ant step for­ward in prac­tice, ca­pa­bil­ity, and in­no­va­tion.

The hire fleet of tech­ni­cal lev­el­ling, in­spec­tion and safety equip­ment will also be ex­panded to meet the grow­ing de­mand of spe­cialised in­stru­ments for short to medium term use.

“Ac­cu­rate was founded 23 years ago, start­ing from hum­ble be­gin­nings. After be­ing in the Can­ter­bury re­gion now for nearly a decade we are ex­tremely pleased to an­nounce the open­ing of our new fa­cil­ity in Christchurch, en­abling the com­pany to meet the de­mands from in­dus­try, not only in tech­nol­ogy and in­stru­men­ta­tion sup­ply, but ser­vice, sup­port, and train­ing,” said di­rec­tor Elle Archer. “Re­cent ex­pan­sion in the busi­ness has seen us en­ter new emerg­ing mar­kets, such as smart city think­ing and in­no­va­tion by in­te­grated tech­nol­ogy. With an ar­ray of ad­di­tional com­pany prac­tices we needed room to grow, re­search and sup­port; this is part of our in­no­va­tion equa­tion.”

After the Can­ter­bury earth­quakes of 2010 and 2011, Ac­cu­rate In­stru­ments saw an in­creased de­mand for in­stru­men­ta­tion and ser­vice, es­pe­cially from the de­sign, con­sul­tancy and en­gi­neer­ing sec­tors. The com­pany worked in con­junc­tion with its man­u­fac­tur­ers and sup­pli­ers to as­sist and pro­vide suit­able and ac­cu­rate equip­ment and tech­nol­ogy.

What was also iden­ti­fied by Ac­cu­rate In­stru­ments dur­ing this pe­riod was the in­dus­try was weak in sev­eral ar­eas of equip­ment and tech­nol­ogy use. Re­li­able sources of in­dus­try knowl­edge was be­ing fre­quently sort after which led Ac­cu­rate to cre­ate, as a sup­port func­tion, the In­dus­try Train­ing and Ed­u­ca­tion De­part­ment.

The new specif­i­cally de­signed Train­ing cen­tre en­ables Ac­cu­rate to pro­vide a range of the­ory, prod­uct and prac­ti­cal train­ing cour­ses at the new lo­ca­tion.

“As a com­pany, we en­deav­our not only to sup­ply our cus­tomers with first class ser­vice, prod­ucts and after-sales care but we also strive to pro­vide a high level of in­dus­try train­ing and knowl­edge needed to en­sure ex­em­plary prac­tice on-site,” said Archer.

Ac­cu­rate In­stru­ments (NZ) Ltd of­fi­cially opens the new build­ing in late spring with a grand open­ing on Fri­day, Novem­ber 24th.
