Straightpoint now offers its loadcell products for rent

David Ayling managing director of Straightpoint (UK) said: “hire services are perfect for clients who hire regularly or those wanting a load cell for a short period of time or single project. We introduced the service to meet the varying demands of our customers especially in an economic climate where businesses cannot always afford to invest capital as easily. Whilst our load cells are an important safety measure for many industries they are often only required on a project basis.”

Mike Whalen of RS Industrial an early rental customer added: “We find it is an excellent option because the equipment we need is generally available from stock and of a type we couldn’t usually get from our previous sources, so we had to compromise with hand held wired read-outs etc. Straightpoint Radio Link has solved this issue. To date we have been very pleased with the customer service, availability and delivery of the items required.”
