To commemorate the milestone for FLIR, Mr. Childs will be honored at an awards ceremony will also receive his FLIR BCAM SD infrared camera compliments of FLIR Systems.
Tom Scanlon, Vice President for Americas Thermography, said, It is fitting that our one-hundred-thousandth infrared camera goes to Bob Childs, a home inspection professional. As our country and our world continue to strive to go green, home inspectors and energy auditors are at the forefront of that monumental effort, evaluating our homes and buildings to ensure they are sound and energy efficient. We are thrilled to celebrate this milestone with our valued distributor, Professional Equipment and with Mr. Childs here in Arizona.
Scanlon added, This remarkable achievement is a reflection of FLIRs success in its efforts to make infrared technology increasingly available and affordable. While FLIRs earliest thermal imagers cost $50,000, todays professionals can access FLIR technology for a fraction of that, with cameras now starting at under $2,000.
Lisa Sympson, Specialty Brands Senior Manager, at Professional Equipment commented, Professional Equipment is proud to partner in recognizing this significant milestone in FLIRs history. This recognition is a testament to the increasingly critical role thermal imaging is playing across industries worldwide.
