Tektronix Service Solutions to Manage Calibration and Repair at NXP Metrology Laboratories


Tektronix Service Solutions, the world’s leading single-source provider of instrument calibration, repair and related services, announced that NXP has selected Tektronix Service Solutions to provide calibration and repair services for all test and measurement instruments at its production and development sites in the Netherlands.  The contract will be managed by the Fluke Service operation in Eindhoven on behalf of the Service Solutions Organisation and will allow NXP to focus on its core business, leaving the calibration of its test and measurement instruments to the experts. 

“Metrology plays a crucial role in the development and production of our products, and it is therefore vitally important to ensure that our test instruments are well maintained and calibrated,” said Leon Sintnicolaas, General Manager of the European Quality Labs at NXP Semiconductors.  “When we decided to outsource the maintenance and calibration of our equipment, we therefore knew that we needed to find an excellent provider.  In the end we chose Tektronix Service Solutions to take over this contract because we felt that they were able to offer the expertise and reliability we were looking for.”

Single-Source Calibration and Repair for Test, Measurement and Control Equipment
Tektronix Service Solutions uses its comprehensive suite of services, global resources and experience to provide a range of services, from asset managementcalibration, and repair, to product and compliance testing and quality certification.

“We are delighted with this new agreement, which we believe will be mutually beneficial to both parties,” said Christophe Bassole, EMEA Operations Director, Tektronix.  “We offer comprehensive experience and knowledge in the metrology field, which means that NXP can leave the maintenance and calibration of their instruments in the hands of the experts, giving them the freedom to concentrate on the day-to-day running of their business.  Meanwhile, this cooperation agreement will enable us to further increase our technical capabilities, and to offer an even broader range of services to our customers.”
