Authorized Distributor

Here at Summit Measurement we pride ourselves on being an Authorized Distributor for each of the product brands that we carry. What is an Authorized Distributor?

An Authorized Distributor has an arrangement with the manufacturer to sell the manufacturer's products with their knowledge and approval. This ensures you are receiving goods that are new, working properly, stored properly and calibrated before they are shipped to you. Unauthorized third party dealers have been known to sell products of compromised quality or questionable origins, alter serial numbers to prevent tracking the origins of the unit, fraudulently misrepresent products (such as not shipping the item pictured), sell refurbished products without informing the customer, or sell products not intended for use in the U.S. All of these fraudulent practices can void the product's warranty. But with an Authorized Distributor such as Summit Measurement these issues are simply not a concern. Only Authorized Distributors can ensure warranty protection.
