Tektronix Expands Global Reach with New Service, Calibration Laboratory in Moscow, Russia

- Multi-Vendor Service Center also Offers Poverka Certification

Beaverton, Ore., 21 December 2012 - Tektronix, the industry's leading multi-vendor service (MVS) provider of instrument calibration, repair and related services, today announced that it has further expanded its global reach with the addition of a service and calibration laboratory in Moscow, Russia. The lab offers in-country service, repair and calibration for Russian customers using Tektronix and Fluke instrumentation as well as for all types of instrumentation, including those not manufactured by Tektronix. The lab is ISO17025 certified and will also offer Poverka-certified calibration - a requirement by many Russian public agencies starting December 2012.

"We are continuing to expand our service and multi-vendor offerings throughout Europe, while working with in-country accreditation agencies such as Poverka to ensure we meet the highest standards for quality and customer service," said Christophe Bassole EMEA service and solution vice president. "Russia is becoming an increasingly important market for us and this new lab will allow us to meet customers' ongoing service and calibration needs in less time and at a lower cost to them."

Tektronix has more repair and calibration labs globally than any another test and measurement supplier, and has recently announced new lab locations and/or regional or local certifications in China, Japan, India, France, Germany and Mexico as the result of multi-million dollar investments in its service operations.

Tektronix is the world's leading provider of multi-vendor calibration, repair and related services. Supporting more than 140,000 products from 9,000-plus manufacturers, the company provides services through more than 1,000 experienced associates across 100 plus points of service worldwide.
