To gain further insight into the challenges that test, maintenance and repair engineers face, element14 has created a new survey to allow engineers around the world to have their say.

element14 already has a deep understanding of the challenges of the product life cycle and helps customers achieve their product goals, including minimizing time to market and optimizing product performance. Alongside over 20,000 of the best tools from over 440 maintenance, repair and operations brands, element14 provides first class logistics support, with stock items available for next day delivery to reduce downtime. The results of the survey will allow element14 to further evaluate areas where it can continue to provide assistance to maintenance engineers and understand what is important to them now and in the future.

James McGregor, Global Head of Test and Tools says:

“Our goal is to provide tools and supporting products that allow our customers to do their jobs quickly, efficiently and safely. The range of products we have is truly holistic in supporting engineering needs from the bench to the board”.

At the electronica show in Europe from 8-11th November, element14 is presenting the ‘World of Electronics’ on their stand, including the latest products for your bench from Weller, Tektronix and Keysight, there will also be an opportunity to win a Weller WT or Tektronix TBS2000.
