Micro Quality Calibration Inc. ("MQC") was founded in 1978 as a technology oriented calibration, repair, testing and First Article inspection facility for precision measurement test equipment. From the beginning MQC has focused on providing the highest quality work product, timely execution, exceptional customer service, flexibility to meet each customer’s business needs and most of all repeatability. MQC followed this motto with razor sharp focus with the one rule of never sacrificing quality. This helped MQC establish a reputation for excellence and reliability among its customer base. As word of mouth spread about the value proposition MQC offered, MQC became a sought after commodity.
As MQC continued to grow so did its product offering. In the mid 80’s MQC expanded its service line offering by becoming recognized as a major sales and distribution center for precision measurement equipment, representing the leading manufacturers in this field. By becoming a sales representative for precision measurement equipment, MQC was able to replace rejected equipment with new equipment quickly and at an affordable cost to the customer, drastically reducing lead time for its customers and having them avoid costly production delays. MQC in essence become a one stop-shop by providing its customers a complete suite of services.
In the late 80’ and early 90’s, MQC’s customer base began to expand and include companies in the Defense, Aerospace, Automotive, Bio-Medical, Electronics, Medical, and Communications industries. Customer’s needs and expectations varied between industries and between public, private and government enterprises. In order to meet the needs of its expanding customer base and the growing widespread adoption of the International Standards or Organization (“ISO”), MQC made the decision to become accredited, traceable and certify itself to the highest standards possible.
With a commitment to continuous improvement and a relentless pursuit of excellence, MQC employed approved ISO/IEC Guide 25, ISO 10012, and ANSI Z540 auditors with the intention of meeting or exceeding all quality assurance, documentation, and accuracy requirements set forth by the agencies listed above. To help facilitate this pursuit of excellence MQC moved to a 15,000 sq. ft. environmentally controlled multi-laboratory facility, exclusively designed for calibration, repair, inspection, and testing of precision measurement test equipment.
Soon thereafter, MQC became accredited by Performance Review Institute (“PRI”) to ISO Guide 25, ANSI/NCSL Z540, ISO 10012-1 with direct traceability to National Institute of Standards and Technology (“N.I.S.T”). All while following the strict compliance of ISO-9000 (series1, 2, 3 & 4) and exceeding accuracy requirements dictated by Federal, Military, and Industrial Specifications.In 2002 the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (“NADCAP”) granted MQC through PRI its ISO/IEC 17025 Accreditation. In 2004 MQC became A2LA ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited.
