ETher NDE News We Won!

It is with great pleasure that we are able to write to let everyone know that last night, ETher NDE won the Achievements in International Business Award at the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards 2013.

We were up against some stiff competition, but it was our impressive export numbers that impressed the judges. 

Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry said "Ether NDE Ltd demonstrated a clear success and growth strategy. From the company launch in 2010, they now export to over 40 countries worldwide and their international sales in the first quarter reached a record high of 69%"

ETher Team with the Award 

John Hansen (MD of ETher NDE) and Karen Bailey (Customer Services Manager) attended the evening on behalf of the company at the Porche Centre, Hatfield.

ETher NDE News ASNT North Atlantic Branch Meeting Report

We joined the American Society of Non-destructive Testing (ASNT) North Atlantic Branch Meeting in association with the BINDT on Tuesday 26th March 2013 in Daventry with an exhibition stand. The meeting is a great opportunity for ASNT Level 3 Inspectors to gain points towards their continued accreditation.

For ETher NDE it was a good chance for us to be able to meet the technicians that use NDT equipment day in and day out. We used the show as an opportunity to get to meet some end-users, introduce them to our products and listen to their feedback and ideas.

Although the numbers were predicted to be low for this meeting, there were more attendees than we first thought. We were pleased with the number of Eddy Current (ECT) users that came to our stand at the meeting and pleased with the number of leads obtained from the show.

It goes to show that sometimes the smaller exhibitions can be just as useful as the larger ones.
