Tecon rig’s 15-year success

2 August 2019

It’s the same again! After 15 years of service, Blake Geoservices have replaced their SPT window sampling rig with …. another Tecop.

“As the last one served us so well we have decided to go for a direct replacement from Tecop,” explained Chris Blake.

The rig was delivered by MGS Technical Sales Engineer Chris White last week.

“Blake Geoservices had bought a TECOP TEC10, the original machine, new 15 years ago. It has been so reliable that Chris decided to buy another one. When I heard this, I told Carlos Wagenseil, TECOP’s export director, and he was over the moon. It is great to have loyal customers with repeat business. That’s why we decided I should deliver the machine and meet Chris Blake to thank him in person,” explained Chris White.

MGS is the UK agent for TECOP SA. See the Tecop section https://www.mgs.co.uk/rigs-tooling/tecop-spt-rigs/
