French Manufacturer of Electronic Test & Measurement Equipment Selects TDS Rentals & Leasing, LLC, for Sales and Service

TDS Rentals & Leasing, LLC, and CAYLAR, SAS, have finalized a representation agreement that provides the French company with a sales and service presence in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The premiere manufacturer of gaussmeters already has a substantial customer base in the U.S., primarily among medical diagnostic equipment producers and research laboratories who use the devices to precisely measure magnetic fields.

For some time, TDS has been providing calibration and repair services for the CAYLAR products and the two companies saw an opportunity to not only grow that business but to provide prospects and customers with a U.S.-based sales and distribution channel.

“We see the relationship in terms of being a single point-of-contact for the CAYLAR customers,” TDS’ President, John Lapicola said. “Even with world-class products and the power of the Internet, overseas manufacturers are at a disadvantage without a domestic sales and servicing arm.”

Asked if the economic troubles in Europe might be seen as a disincentive to buying products manufactured in France, TDS’ CFO, Darrell Frauenheim said, “Absolutely not. The fact is, U.S. manufacturers are not offering this kind of product and CAYLAR is the market leader.”

“The market for MRI machines is expanding,” Lapicola noted. “The population is getting older and the technology continues to advance. I think we could see double-digit annual growth.”
The importance of testing magnetic fields has implications for the safety and health of the millions of patients who undergo MRI procedures every year. Suppliers and servicers of those machines follow stringent procedures for their installation and maintenance and gaussmeters play a critical role in ensuring the devices are functioning properly.
