15th February 2022 – Elop Technology has secured its first contract and entered into a strategic cooperation agreement for the British and Irish markets.
Allied Associates Geophysical Ltd, UK’s leading supplier of geophysical and non-destructive equipment, has placed an order for one handheld Elop Insight ultrasound scanner.
“There is no such technology as Elop Insight available in the UK market today. Our ambition is that this will be the first of many orders in the coming years,” says James Bell, Technical Director at Allied Associates Geophysical Ltd
The patented rolling Elop Insight ultrasound scanner helps to identify issues that owners of concrete infrastructure must address. It is designed to quickly inspect and assess large surface areas. The live 3D visualization of the concrete structure on the scanner screen, provides a real-time interpretation of the concrete’s internal state, including elements and defects such as cracks, air pockets, voids, delamination, and rebars.
Further, Allied Associates Geophysical has signed an agreement that secures the company the distribution rights for Elop Insight in the UK and Ireland.
Allied Associates Geophysical was established in 1988 and has since developed into one of the leading suppliers of geophysical and non-destructive testing equipment in the UK market. The company specialises in geophysical equipment rental, sales, repairs and product training, and are very active in demonstrating equipment to their clients.
“Allied Associates possess a remarkably high level of technical knowhow and high-end products in their portfolio. They have a wide range of established client relationships that Elop can tap into. Such a partnership model is by far the most cost-effective way of enabling technology adoption and fast-tracking sales growth in the huge UK and Irish infrastructure markets,” says Niklas Persson, Head of Global Sales at Elop Technology.”
The distributor partnership with Allied Associates also includes a partner status where the company will manage maintenance, repairs, and product training for Elop Insight clients in UK and Ireland.
