IR Supplies and Services Announces New Partnership with Creative Electron

Expanding World-class  X-rays Solutions to Canadian Industries

Edmonton, Alberta—IR Supplies and Services is pleased to announced their partnership with Creative Electron, an industry leader in X-ray systems.   Together they offer organizations across Canada the tools to ensure inspections are done at the highest standard, a standard that results in quality output.  X-ray cabinets manufactured by Creative Electron are offered in four main formats that can be customized to each client’s needs. 

“IR has always been focused on bringing premium brands to our clients,” commented Robert Muschket, President of IR.  “Providing clients with products that meet their needs is our priority.  Since opening our Burlington location we have been able to expand our product line for clients who require solutions beyond what we have traditionally offered.  The products developed by Creative Electron do just that—offers new solutions.”

Bill Cardoso, founder and CEO of Creative Electron, expands on the Canadian-focused partnership. “At Creative Electron, we pride ourselves on partnering with companies that are leaders in their fields.  That’s why we are so excited to join forces with IR, a team so well aligned with our vision of solving commercial and industrial challenges with first-in-class X-ray inspection tools.  We see IR as an extension of our ability to actually understand and resolve customer problems rather than just selling boxes”

Creative Electron manufactures their X-ray inspection systems at their home office in San Marcos, California.  This North American solution ensures quality controls are maintained at the highest level.  It means that customizations can be easily executed with direct communications with the IR-CE team.

Ed Cabral, Director of Advanced Equipment, Training & Services at IR, the primary contact for businesses interested in discovering more about the Creative Electron cabinets, sees the partnership as a natural extension of the IR offering. “Today’s inspection and manufacturing in countless industries are becoming more and more complex.  It requires advanced technology that helps ensure processes result in maintaining high standards.  Safety is paramount.”

By Brian Sargent, Co-owner, IR Supplies and Services

Several months ago, when I found out about Dr. Rehman’s and Mr. Jaques’ new publication, Practical Field Handbook in Industrial Radiography and Radiography Interpretation, I immediately inquired to George about obtaining a copy.

George’s name came up from time to time as he steadily became a regarded and respected authority within our NDT community.
