When the World stood still, ACQUIP pushed forward with solutions!

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, ACQUIP recognized the potential impact on its operations, and those of our clients and partners, and immediately developed a contingency plan to ensure uninterrupted services despite potential restrictions and lockdowns. ACQUIP developed a technical, operational and logistical grid to assist the quick manufacture of ventilators and upstream components for critical medical equipment needed during the covid 19 crisis. Throughout the pandemic, ACQUIP developed and deployed remote tech support solutions to provide assistance to clients in locations where physical entry was restricted due to COVID-19 regulations. ACQUIP augmented reality tools, quick access technical templates and quick guides to troubleshoot and resolve time critical technical issues remotely for those clients. Additionally, ACQUIP expanded its training offerings to accommodate the demand during the lockdown. And last but not least, ACQUIP acquired the KinAiry System, to support NIST IR-80161 and ASME B89 Interim Calibration Checks on Laser Tracker and meet NADCAP Laser Tracker Audit requirements. This system allowed us to be fully operational with our Laser Tracker fleet, and ensure accuracy and reliability of each system used in laser alignment services and tool rentals. This enabled ACQUIP to offer calibration services to other laser tracker owner clients to keep their systems up to date on certification during a time where such support was restricted or unavailable.
2021-2023
ACQUIP formulated a comprehensive strategy to expand its presence worldwide. Reorganized and restructured assets and footprint in Latin America, Caribbean, Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Asia Pacific regions. Our local presence allows us to support service work and rental services in these regions more effectively, easily and securely. ACQUIP has developed tailored services and solutions to meet the specific requirements and preferences of customers in each region. ACQUIP implemented robust monitoring and evaluation mechanisms to track performance and impact of post-covid demand using key performance indicators such as customer feedback, recommendations, and overall client retention.
