Through close collaboration with one particular oil exploration customer, Axis was able to improve the quality and reliability of the customer’s design, enabling the customer to extend the ‘useful life’ of each unit sold, saving cost for its own customers and enhancing its brand image within the market.  Axis specialises in manufacturing high reliability products for customers, which are essential in the Oil & Gas market where the cost of exploration is very high and 'downtime' due to unreliable components very expensive.
