Mason Technology is the Evident Distributor in Ireland – hear from our clients
“As a long-time user of Evident (Olympus) NDT equipment, I first came across Mason Technology when Evident appointed them as the official distributor of their NDT equipment and Stephen Smith got in touch to introduce himself. It is fair to say that I have not looked back since. Stephen is quick to respond to my queries and I can trust him to be honest and frank even when he knows the response is not what I want to hear.
Stephen will always keep me informed of new products or updates that he thinks would be of interest to me and because he has a very clear understanding of the Evident products and my market, he is usually correct.
When our equipment needs to be calibrated, Mason Technology look after the whole process for us making it as pain-free as possible.”
Pat Murray, Level 3 NDT Manager, Dublin Aerospace Ltd
“The support from Mason Technology and the Olympus (now Evident) products we have purchased have been a part of my journey ever since I started in NUIG nearly 20 years ago. Their support, knowledge and patience has always been welcome and much needed at times! We have gone from basic laboratory microscopes to a digital age and the latest digital slide scanners, at every step we have appreciated their support. As we move to a new era it will be with confidence that you and your team will guide us through any new innovations and challenges ahead.”
Mark Webber, Senior Technical Officer at the School of Medicine of NUI Galway
