Kent Anderson, President of MetroCal Inc., started the company in March of 1994 with the foresight that West Michigan had a need for a highly competent and capable Metrology and Calibration lab to support the rapidly growing industry base.

Mission Statement

MetroCal, Inc. is committed to provide 100% Customer Satisfaction by providing technically accurate and competent calibration, test activities and products on time and at a competitive price.

MetroCal Objective

Meet all defined Customer requirements in a cost-effective manner reflecting continuous performance improvement.

From day one, MetroCal has focused on customer service and quality. In September of 1994, MetroCal became one of only seven commercial Metrology Labs throughout the nation to receive an A2LA Certificate of Accreditation to the ISO 17025 standard (formally ISO Guide 25). This Accreditation assures that all services performed are traceable to the National Institute of Standard and Technology and meet or exceed the “General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories”.

Originating in Michigan, Metrocal has expanded its services to provide products and process verifications throughout the nation as well as internationally. In 1999, MetroCal was on the move, purchased land and constructed a 14,000 square ft building specifically designed to support the controlled environments needed to perform proper metrology services.

Since its creation, MetroCal has been committed to adding more services, higher technology, better accuracies and more efficient test methods to ensure we stay one step ahead of the competition. The diversity of MetroCal’s technical personnel allows us to perform new and unique calibrations and verifications when others can not.
