“We’re pleased to receive this prestigious Small Business of the Year award,” said Cary Albert, President. “It is further validation of our efforts to offer our customers the highest level of service, integrity and accountability possible. Over the last year, we’ve rebranded the company, launched a new e-commerce site, introduced a valuable set of Assurances and Guarantees for customers and created MATRewards , the Used Test & Measurement industry’s first loyalty program. This award is a great acknowledgement of the advances we have made.”

MATsolutions is one of eight Irving small businesses selected as a 2014 Blue Ribbon Small Businesses of the Year. Irving leads the nation for the sixth consecutive year with the most winners of the Blue Ribbon Small Business of the Year award.

Growing Range of Capabilities and Offerings

In December 2013, MATsolutions changed its name and brand identity to better reflect a growing range of test and measurement equipment capabilities and offerings, including a stronger emphasis on calibration and repair. In addition to the name change, key features of the rebranding included:

  • A new website that can process orders, RFQs and payments and manage communications with customers wishing to buy online;
  • The MATrewards loyalty program, designed to reward MATsolutions customers for their loyalty by providing them tangible and financial value;
  • Unique guarantees, including the No Surprises and Price Match guarantees, to provide clients the peace of mind they need in today’s test and measurement marketplace;
  • A consistent, online marketing effort that includes monthly newsletters and specials; a weekly blog series, and an active social media presence on LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, and Facebook.
