    Eagle Testing Company was opened in September 2004. Newco Inc. was instrumental then and now. It continues to be a pleasure to conduct business with them. Their customer service personnel has always been very friendly and knowledgeable. Their technical support has been excellent in helping us keep certain equipment operating. I have found that any need I have in their expertise they are just not willing to help but seem excited too. We have been very pleased with Newco’s service, support and pricing.

    Challenge Engineering and Testing, Inc has utilized Newco Inc to provide assistance in research of products and to provide our required NDT supplies for many years. Newco has worked with Challenge to provide the most competitive pricing on the many NDT products we required. Best of all is the excellent service, quick response time and “going the extra mile” if we are in need of specialty products or emergency response time. Newco sales personnel we contact are like family and are definitely part of the Challenge Engineering & Testing team providing NDT services worldwide
