Microscope Company History

From the Owner

I started my microscope company repair business with help from my old friend and boss Klaus Dern of Micro Precision Company in Atlanta, Georgia. Klaus was a fine mechanic with Leitz/Wetzlar Germany, We worked alongside Vashaw Scientific, the Leitz/Leica Dealer for the southeastern United States. After many years working in the Atlanta office, I was sent to head service in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In 1985, I went out on my own and moved my business to Sanford, NC. While there I was lucky enough to meet and become friends with Lenwood Cleaton, the Olympus Microscope sales manager. Lennie provided me the opportunity to be trained in Long Island, NY at the Olympus US Headquarters Service Department. During training I met Mike Gallo, the Olympus Service Manager. Several years later, Mike is working for Nikon and was kind enough to offer me training on Nikon microscopes. I still work and reside in Sanford with my wife Terri, 3 kids and 3 dogs.
