SIMI VALLEY, Calif., Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — McBain Systems of Simi Valley has again been recognized as one of the fastest growing private companies in the area by the San Fernando Valley Business Journal. In their November 12, 2012 issue, the Business Journal listed McBain — with 22% growth in revenues since 2009 — as number 43 on their list of the top sixty companies. McBain also made the list in 2005.
McBain Systems’ growth has come from the three segments of its business: as the largest distributor of Leica industrial microscopes in North America, as a developer and seller of its own advanced inspection systems, and as a provider of service and repair for microscopes and other instruments. On the microscope side, McBain represents Leica Microsystems’ Industrial Division in the territory extending from southern California through the Southwest to Louisiana. McBain’s own proprietary systems are used for imaging, inspection, metrology and more, and they are sold worldwide, into semiconductor, cleantech, medical equipment, aerospace and numerous other advanced technology industries. In the service segment of its business, McBain provides mechanical and electrical repair, calibration and reconditioning for a broad spectrum of microscopes and ancillary equipment as well as for its own proprietary systems.
“I’m really proud of our people and their performance, that they’ve put us on the Business Journal’s fastest growing business list once again,” said McBain’s president and CEO, Michael Crump. “I think it also proves that especially in challenging economic times, our customers need the types of high-performance instruments and systems we sell, ones that give extra value for the dollar.”
