The Mississauga News

NIR Technologies Inc. was featured twice by one of Canada's leading business newspapers The Mississauga News.

"I wouldn’t be surprised if in the future, with the advancements in instrumentation and computers, that the NIR technology would become a household appliance just like microwaves to monitor the type of food you eat." says founder and Director of Technology, Hormoz Azizian.

"To be responsive to our  customer's needs is our goal at NIR Technologies Inc.," says Azizian. "The size of our  company reflects our ability to tune into the specific needs and concerns of our customers."

"NIR has just completed an identification study of three non-metallic material (o-rings, greases, and cable insulation) to be presented at the Fifth CNS International Conference on CANDU Maintenance organized by Canadian Nuclear Society"

"Azizian believes that if a simple and direct technique to determine accurately the fat content of the body was developed, the body fat content measurements could become routine tests in health clubs, fitness clubs,and sports."
