How pleasant would it be and how much time would you save if you only dealt with a few people who knew who you were, who knew your history and the specific requirements of your company? Our low turnover in personnel helps to achieve just that scenario. At Washington Calibration, Inc. the average employment tenure is 16 years. Within our staff there are two people with over 30 years, two with over 20 years, and three with over 10 years. Out of a total staff of 10 people, that is really saying something. In addition to the testimony of how much we enjoy the work and working with our customers, the length of service means stability and that manifests as actual knowledge gained from experience; and that says that common sense is still employed here after more than 40 years.
Established by Bob Washington in 1965 as Washington Granite, it was a one-man operation created to fill a growing need for Granite Surface Plate resurfacing and calibration in what was then a young and bourgeoning Phoenix manufacturing community. With almost two decades of quality service behind him, Bob Washington incorporated, changed the name to Washington Calibration, Inc. and expanded calibration services. In 1984 our current owner, David Sabia, purchased the company from Bob Washington and since that time we have expanded to include a physical calibration laboratory and an environmentally controlled dimensional calibration lab, as well as, on-site service where granite surface plate calibration and resurfacing are still our specialty.
