Recently Mike Hare, Sales Manager and Dave Mackie, R & D at Heron Instruments went to Japan to meet with representatives of our exclusive distributor and business partner Pentough.

While there, current and future plans for both companies were discussed including the innovative use of Heron Instruments’ technology in the Pentough product line. We were also treated to a tour of the Pentough facilities in Osaka and Yokohama as well as their test facility and lab on Awaji Island.

A tour of the former capital city Nara and its historical sites with Gotoh san (President of Pentough), was but a small example of the hospitality we experienced.



After such a productive trip, we anticipate many years of mutual co-operation and business success.

We would like to thank Pentough for all of their hospitality and to Reiko for her endless hours of translating our conversations.
