Benefits of Being a PeneCert Customer
We do not only provide test results to our customers; we want to be a partner in their business and provide them with solutions to their problems to help maintain their system compliance.
We recently had a customer who forgot to send in samples for the month with an audit scheduled for that week. The customer overnighted the samples and the PeneCert technician was able to run the tests that same day and get the results and certification back to the customer before the audit.
One customer had roof damage from a massive storm and they were concerned that the penetrant tanks had become contaminated with rain water. A Magnaflux product manager in contact with the customer had them submit samples of their tanks to the PeneCert Lab. The technician ran water content tests on the tank samples and found that there was no water contamination. The customer was able to keep the tanks full of penetrant, saving them time and thousands of dollars.
We strive to meet and exceed our customers’ needs with the services we offer as part of the Magnaflux culture and quality that our customers expect and receive.
