Martin Robinson, CEO of IRISS commented: “Opening an office in this strategic region of the world means we’re able to be more flexible and within a reasonable proximity to potential customers across the Asia-Pacific region.

The use of infrared thermography and ultrasonics in performing electrical inspections of energized equipment, has been brought to the forefront of globally recognized safety standards. It has long been a priority of IRISS to provide greater access to our products in emerging and growth markets that will facilitate increasing safer work practices and growing our operations in APAC will allow just that,” said CEO, Mr. Robinson.
