"Thank you for the exceptional service and courtesy - it's not often we find this level in business any more."
Pat Johnston, Fromm Packaging Systems Africa
"We are very pleased with the performance of the STX-1000-1. We never knew our strap tension varied so much until we got your device. It has enabled us to troubleshoot in areas previously never considered and allowed us to come up with solutions to get consistent strap tension. So thank you, Tensitron!"
Allan Harris, Red Stag Timber
"Our OEM, Pilatus, recommended that we purchase the ACX-500-1 tension meter. This style of cable tension meter is far superior in use and accuracy over the old analogue tool."
Josh Hogan, Royal Flying Doctor Service, Australia
"Timely delivery as promised was a huge bonus. Really saved us. Delivery of a fully charged, functional and ready to use instrument was paramount to complete our task upon retrieval of the device. We were using the tension meter within 15 minutes of picking up the device from the delivery location. The device's easy reading capabilities and installation procedure provided an accurate measure of the data we were looking to obtain."
Matthew Corish, Kiewit - Covepoint
