Leasametric is specialized in test and measurement instruments for applications in telecommunications, research and development, environmental technology, education, defense and security, aeronautics and many other industrial sectors. The company sells brand new and completely refurbished units/instruments and offers rental as well as calibration, repair and maintenance services.
“We also have a buy-back programme and provide services for instruments that are not being supported anymore by the manufacturer,” says Managing Director Marc Vigneron. Leasametric is equipped with a modern metrology laboratory where about half of the company’s 23 staff members work.
Leasametric, as a french company, was established in 1993. “The brand has already been around since the 1970s and was created by the founders of Hewlett Packard in San Francisco,” says Mr. Vigneron. “I set up my own business and later acquired the brand.”
Based southeast of Paris, Leasametric has a branch office in Belgium. “We ship about 37% of our devices abroad, to customers across Europe as well as in the USA, Asia and even North Africa,” states Mr. Vigneron. The company has annual sales of four million EUR and works together with all major instrument manufacturers, including Tektronix, Keysight, Rohde et Schwarz, Chroma, Fluke, Viavi and several other market leaders.

“We have over 1,000 test and measurement instruments or units in stock that are available for rent for any period between a single week to six months, just as required by the customer,” explains Mr. Vigneron. “This, together with a very broad portfolio and the provision of calibration services, sets us apart from the competition. Through our rental solutions, we enable our customers to save costs; and through our repair and maintenance services, we extend the instruments’ lifecycle.”
To expand its international market position, Leasametric plans to recruit additional staff for its Belgian operation and to open a new office in London. “The goal is to increase our export ratio to 50%,” concludes Mr. Vigneron.
