What does it mean that Axiom Test Equipment was aquired by Transcat, Inc?

We are excited to announce that as of August 2023, Axiom Test Equipment is now a Transcat company! 

Transcat is a leading provider of accredited calibration, repair, inspection, and laboratory instrument services and a value-added distributor that rents, markets, and sells new and used professional grade handheld test, measurement, and control instrumentation for highly technical industries. Transcat is committed to enhancing their ability to provide customers with quality nationwide calibration services, and Axiom’s exceptional presence in the test equipment rental market made an ideal fit.

According to Lee Rudow, President and Chief Executive Officer of Transcat, “Axiom is a profitable business that will expand our existing Rental offering, which we believe will create opportunities for accelerated growth, while also bringing skilled staff with extensive industry knowledge and expertise.”

 This acquisition provides customers with an expanded range of products and services provided by Transcat to further meet their needs, including:

  • Access to an additional test equipment rental pool - available for short and long-term rentals
  • Extensive calibration and repair capabilities across a North American network of over 27 labs
  • Broad range of test and measurement products with all the top brands in the industry

 All operations will remain unchanged as Axiom operates under the Transcat Corporation. For more details about the acquisition, click here to read the press release.

Pre-pay via Paypal, Visa or MasterCard or Wire Transfer. Net 30 terms may be granted upon credit acceptance. For Net 30 terms, please fill out our Credit Application. For customers outside of the United States, our terms are wire transfer in advance unless otherwise negotiated.

I need to order equipment that is not listed on your website. Can Axiom help me?

Yes. we have relationships with a vast network of test equipment sources, both domestically and world-wide. Let us know your requirements.

Has the equipment I ordered from Axiom been tested? 

Equipment will typically be quoted and assumed as ‘Functionally Verified’. We find that the majority of our customers either have their own trusted third-party lab or their own internal calibration lab, and prefer the equipment be calibrated through these channels. 
For those customers that need the equipment calibrated, we will certainly accommodate you. There is typically an additional charge and extra lead-time for this service.

Can I purchase items from Axiom even though I am not located in the United States?

Yes. We are a worldwide supplier of quality test equipment. 

What is the lead-time to ship my equipment after my order has been placed?

Lead-times generally vary from one day to two weeks and are noted on our quotation to you. Please be sure to discuss your more urgent requirements with your sales representative so we can be sure to meet your expectations. 

Can you provide international packing and shipping?

Yes. We have experience with the changing and ever more stringent intricacies of international export laws. 

Our shipping department securely packs your instruments so they arrive at their destination safely and ready for use. 

Who pays for the shipping charges?

We ship equipment on your FedEx or UPS account. For U.S. customers only, if you do not have an account with FedEx or UPS, Axiom can pre-pay the charges and add them to your invoice(s).

Where is your inventory price list?

We don’t have one. We offer our equipment at a competitive price driven by a combination of the cost we must pay for the equipment, the added amount to refurbish or repair and accessorize the unit, along with the fair market value today. This selling price changes on a constant basis, depending on the availability and demand of the unit.

How long is your warranty?

We offer a 6 month warranty on most items sold to end-users (3-months to resellers). This warranty is included in the price of the item at time of quotation. Should you require a longer warranty, we can offer extended time periods for minimal cost. The few items that carry a shorter warranty will be noted at time of quotation.  Please review our Terms & Conditions for further details. 

What do I need to do if I want to keep the rental longer than the original term I agreed to? 

Nothing, unless your purchasing department requires that a new or revised PO be generated before funds can be disbursed. However, please be advised that Axiom’s Terms & Conditions will always take precedence and that all units on rent will be invoiced and payments will be due through the minimum term and thereafter until return of the equipment to us, whether or not the period is covered by the customer’s purchase order.
