MDS Stats
Helping customers achieve plantwide optimization for over 50 years

Our global team of experienced field engineers provides a comprehensive range of machinery diagnostic services (MDS) for rotating and reciprocating machinery as well as fixed asset types—regardless of original equipment manufacturer.


From a single engineer in 1972, our MDS capabilities have grown to encompass a team of ~150 dedicated professionals today, many with decades of experience. We have completed more than 18,000 machinery diagnostic projects and the results are maintained in an extensive archive so that lessons learned on one project benefit other projects where similar machinery problems are encountered. Our sophisticated IT capabilities allow MDS colleagues from around the world to easily collaborate in real time using this archive and their collective areas of expertise. This ensures that our extensive knowledge and broad experience can be brought to bear on each problem, regardless of where the machinery is located.
