Campbell, Calif. – August, 2014 —Zircon Corporation, maker of the original StudSensor™ stud finder, returns to the Expo Nacional Ferretera August 28-30 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico at Stand 2080.

Heralded as the renowned leader in sensing technology, the demand for Zircon® sensors by Guadalajara professional contractors is overwhelming. Construction professionals from within Mexico, Central and South America, and beyond are eager to get their hands on the Zircon tools that can improve the quality of their work, increase productivity and, ultimately, help them save time and money.

Said an attendee from last year’s Expo Nacional 2013 show of the Zircon MetalliScanner® MT 6 metal locator, “I am definitely interested in the MT 6 to detect and differentiate ferrous and non-ferrous metals. We have had problems, time and time again, trying to locate pipes—sometimes resulting in accidents and loss of time and money.” The MT 6 can find rebar and metal through concrete up to 15 cm (6 inches) deep.

Remarked another contractor, “A product that looks particularly interesting is the Breaker ID for locating broken/damaged electrical wires and circuit breakers.” The Zircon circuit breaker finder works effortlessly and turns a normal two-person project into one—enabling contractors and do-it-yourselfers to cut work time in half.

These tools, to be showcased along with the MultiScanner® i520 OneStep® multifunction wall scanner, offer advanced quality and innovation, the latest patented and proprietary features and technology, and are affordable for builders, contractors, remodelers, and do-it-yourselfers.

While most professionals expressed their desire for tools that provide solutions to their problems, some also commented on the value and importance of technical support—an area that Zircon continuously improves based on in-depth and interactive customer feedback.

Zircon’s commitment to providing solutions worldwide extends well beyond the product scope to encompass the overall customer experience. Recognizing the need to provide timely and relevant support and service to distributors, retailers, professionals, and tool enthusiasts on a global level is what makes them the sought-after category leader.

Various after-market programs, such as their Interactive Support Center, offer 24/7 online support and is also available in Spanish, among other languages. ZirconTV, a YouTube channel dedicated to providing tips and instructions on projects and step-by-step tool use enables users access to an extensive collection of troubleshooting videos, answers to how-to questions, and advice on selecting the appropriate Zircon tool for their job. To speak directly with a Zircon expert, in English or Spanish, just call their toll-free number Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm PST.

“A superior bilingual technical support team, backed by a social media and cloud-based Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database, provides the around-the-clock assistance end users, anywhere in the world, deserve. Zircon is committed to supporting our customers, whether they are distributors, retailers or the professionals who use our tools on a daily basis.
