Rion are one of only two really large (>£100m turnover) global manufacturers of sound and vibration measurement instrumentation. Rion were established in 1944 to develop commercial products based on the research carried out at the Kobayasi Institue of Physical Research in Tokyo, Japan.
Only large companies like Rion manufacture the instruments in their entirety (including top quality measurement microphones) and are able to invest the sums necessary to design and constently manufacture high quality instruments.
Rion are the dominant sound and vibration brand in Japan and up to the end of the 20th century their global position was largely as a result of their share of the South East Asia and Oceana markets.
Since the turn of the millennium Rion have taken a significant proportion of market share in Europe, especially in the UK where ANV Measurement Systems, the sole UK Rion Distributor, have established Rion as a leading brand with consultants, the construction and demolition industries, and in the windfarm sector. Rion and ANV Measurement Systems continue to make gains in the more traditional local authority and social landlord markets.
Rion, as a global company, manufacture almost anything a noise and/or vibration professional might need. ANV Measurement Systems recognised, however, that a vibration meter to measure PPV is essential in the UK market and this was not manufactured by Rion. ANV are also sole UK Distributors for the Profound Vibra series of vibration meters. The Profound Vibra series are designed specifically for construction and demolition.
Established in 2000, ANV Measurement Systems have always aimed to provide Sales, Hire & Calibration with excellent support.
The combination of instrumentation from Rion and Profound which is:-
- easy to use; and
- easy and quick to download
and ANV's industry-leading customer support have proved to be a successful formula.
