The Leaders in Metrology Quality You Can Stand By

History of Micro Quality Calibration

Providing Effective Calibration Services in Southern California Since 1978

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 highly sought-after commodity.

As MQC continued to grow, so did its product offering. In the mid-80s, 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, became a one-stop-shop by providing its customers a complete suite of services.

Our all-encompassing approach to calibration services includes:

  • A fast and reliable turnaround. MQC uses just one facility, allowing us to provide you with comprehensive calibration services in a single location. By utilizing this location, we have been taking care of our customers’ needs quickly and efficiently for the past decade. In fact, over the past 10 years, MQC has achieved a 98% success rate in adhering to our 5-business-day turnaround. This turnaround is the most timely and consistent amongst all companies in this industry.

  • Real-time data analytics. In an in-depth report, you can view instrument-specific analytics that are customized to your preferences. With the information, you can identify applications in which incorrect instruments were utilized, identify poorly performing departments and/or owners, and improve your overall processes.

In the late 80s and early 90s, MQC’s customer base began to expand and include companies in the defense, aerospace, automotive, biomedical, electronics, medical, and communications industries. Customers’ 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 for 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 (series 1, 2, 3, and 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. MQC has and continues to grow steadily. It’s been over 40 years, and the vision and values remain the same. We have never rested on our laurels and continue to invest in state-of-the-art test equipment with the sole purpose of providing our customers the ability to solve their most intricate measurement needs at the highest accuracy with our complete suite of services. Today, MQC is considered by many to be at the forefront of the metrology industry with a service offering and capabilities unmatched among its peers.
