Several members of the AYVA Team recently travelled to England for TecQuipment’s Global Selling Partners Conference. Representatives from more than 50 territories were in attendance and it was a great opportunity to network with other educational suppliers. This past year was TQ’s most successful year to date and we were excited and thankful to receive the Agent of the Year Award for 2015.
Over the course of 3 days the TecQuipment Team outdid themselves with in-depth product demonstrations combined with hands-on training for their full range of trainers. These product sessions ranged from fluid dynamics to thermodynamics to material testing and much more. They also introduced us to their new free and forced Vibration series before taking us on a very impressive tour of TecQuipment’s factory – where they manufacture all of their products in house with unparalleled attention to detail.
In keeping with TecQuipment’s work hard, play hard mentality; we also visited the Donington Grand Prix Collection which was filled with Formula 1 cars and World War II Vehicles. On our last night, we all attended the Medieval Sheriffs Banquet in Nottingham where we were entertained by jugglers and musicians while enjoying a great feast.
All and all, it was a wonderful trip and we can’t wait until the next one.

On June 15 & 16, AYVA visited the ASEE (American Society for Engineering Education) conference held in Seattle this year. The conference spanned over 5 days and included lectures, workshops and an exhibitor hall.
Dianne Beveridge, President of AYVA, and Quentin Dus, sales representative, were able to meet with several of our product partners such as the British manufacturer TecQuipment, and the American brand PASCO Scientific.
The conference was well attended (with over 4000 participants) and our partners’ booths were visited by numerous engineering professors, interested in learning more about the lab equipment available for their teaching needs.
If you wish to know more about these brands as well as our other engineering product lines, please visit our partners page.
Nida Najfi, the newest addition to the AYVA Team visited the Materials Science Lab at the University of Waterloo.
She is pictured here with TecQuipment‘s Modular Structures and Materials Testing equipment which has been well received at universities across Canada. To read feedback from one of our professors who is a long-time user of this equipment, click here
PIGNAT’s Technical Specialist, Regis Rodriguez was at University of Windsor at the end of May to install a recently purchased Refrigeration Cycle Unit. He also provided a day-long training session to graduate students, instructors, and professors. Everyone in attendance found it very informative and was excited to start using the equipment.

In the past, several PASCO, Tecquipment and Elettronica Veneta equipment have also been purchased by the University from AYVA.
