Williamsburg, VA —Customers gave instrumentation suppliers and manufacturers a good report card, says the Measurement, Control & Automation Association (MCAA) , although there’s room to improve services, according to the 2007 MCAA “Customer Satisfaction Survey.”

Among survey respondents, 69.4% found MCAA instrumentation companies to be very good or excellent in customer service, 68% very good or excellent in technical support, 54% for availability of spare parts, 51% for customer training, and 50% for repairs.

Respondents also rated 66% of instrumentation companies in the survey as very good or excellent for company reputations. More than 95% would be somewhat or very likely to recommend them and somewhat or very likely to purchase from them again in the future. Just 58% found instrumentation companies’ marketing materials and Websites to be very good or excellent, MCAA noted.

More MCAA Customer Satisfaction Survey results , details, and methods are available from MCAA, a U.S. trade association representing manufacturers and distributors of instrumentation, systems, and software used in industrial process control and factory automation around the world.
