Hydro Leader: Please tell us about ViewTech Borescopes.
Duncan White: We’re a small company of about 10 people based in Traverse City, Michigan. We are the exclusive distributor in the United States and Canada of ViewTech Borescopes for commercial and industrial applications. A borescope is a small inspection camera that can go inside places you can’t reach with your eyes. The technology is related to that used in medical endoscopes. The difference is that the borescope needs to be durable enough to work in industrial settings. With many types of inspection cameras, you can put the camera in, but you can’t move it around. We distribute a class of borescopes called articulating video borescopes, which means that their ends can be moved around to get a better view of the area that you’re inspecting.
