Why choose IMC Environmental Monitoring Solutions?

For our experience

We have an enviable reputation in wireless environmental monitoring and control. Our Hanwell and IceSpy brands cover a wide range of parameters including temperature, humidity, CO2, LUX, airflow and others whilst our ShockLog and ShockWatch brands cover tilt, shock and vibration. We make it our business to understand our markets and our customers across the globe – from the Heritage sector to Heavy Industry via Food, Hospitals and Pharmaceuticals.
And our systems are currently in use in an amazing array of applications from helping to preserve artefacts in The Royal Palaces and The Vatican to monitoring for damage during the transportation of power transformers around the world.
Our strength lies in our breadth of experience. We use it to react to the changes in legislation that can drive the needs of our customers and to respond to the advances in environmental monitoring technology that allow us to offer our customers a better and more effective way to achieve their business goals.

For our approach

Every one of our customers is different and they all require their own individual solution. Our approach is to listen, to ask questions and only then offer advice on the system or product that is right for them. This can take minutes or months depending on the complexity of the situation. We survey your sites, we install your environmental monitoring systems and we offer you post-sales support for our products as and when you need it. We also operate a network of distributors across the globe to help us service those customers who we cannot easily reach.
