#MFGDay #MadeinUSA #Manufacturing

Since 1975 we have been proud to manufacture our borescopes and endoscopes right here in The United States.  Our technicians are truly the heart and soul of the company.  Without their specialized skills and dedication, we wouldn’t be able to continue to be one of the top leaders in Remote Visual Inspection (RVI)

Throughout the years, their hard work and dedication has afforded us the opportunity to create many “firsts” and allowed us to be create and design what is now the industry standard in engine borescope kits.

Our dedicated team has been with us for many years, and we have been lucky to have them as apart of the Machida Family.

To all of our manufacturing technicians, we thank you for your dedication to provide us with superior products. #MFGDay
