My engagement with Vision Scientific & Engineering started largely by chance. I was looking for quite a specialized equipment; Zetasizer nano that is used in characterization of nanoparticles. Nanotechnology research and specifically its application in the biomedical field is largely in its infancy in Africa. As such, dealers with capacity to supply such specialized equipment were almost non-existence in Kenya. I contacted the manufacturer of the equipment Malvern Panalytical Ltd, United Kingdom who then linked me to Vision Scientific & Engineering who promptly came to my rescue, guided me through the process and finally delivered the required equipment.

The regular contact and communications with Vision Scientific & Engineering team led by their Director ensured that the process was not only completed to plan but ahead of schedule as well.

I am a research scientist in biomedical field. My engagement with the Vision Scientific & Engineering Kenya Ltd has been in the area of acquisition of capital equipment for use in research. In all the times that I have engaged the company, I have ended up a very satisfied and happy client. What I like most about the company, is the professionalism seen with every project they engage in. The company prides itself in providing a service that will leave a lasting satisfaction on their clients. To them, it is not just about sales but how to ensure that their clients achieve maximum benefits from what they purchase. I liked the approach of them engaging the clients and advising them on what is the best purchase option for optimum output of the intended work. The Director and the entire team is readily available to offer professional support. This regular contact and communications ensures that the job is completed promptly and without any mishaps.
