MSI-Viking Gage, LLC announces their 50th year in business in 2017.  MSI-Viking Gage has grown from a small South Carolina tool distributor founded in 1967, to a regional and nationally recognized company in the Quality and Precision Measuring Industry.

“I believe that our success is attributed to two things,” said Chuck Shaw, MSI-Viking Gage owner and CEO. “First, the dedication of a fantastic team of employees and suppliers, who are passionate about great customer service. And second, our driving principle to never stand still.  We are always moving forward by continually increasing our offerings and optimizing our processes and technology.” Shaw was one of two employees who purchased the original Viking Tool Company.  “It’s been an exciting and sometimes humbling journey to nurture and grow this company to what it is today.”

Dan Carter, recently named president of MSI-Viking Gage, adds, “Metrology is our core and only business. By representing the world’s leading precision measurement equipment manufacturers, our vast calibration services, and our knowledgeable staff, we offer customers a turnkey solution in this dynamic industry.”

MSI-Viking Gage is also a leader of In-Lab and On-Site Calibration, Repair, and Inspection Services accredited to A2LA 17025 and ISO 9001. MSI-Viking Gage provides tremendous depth with a constantly growing A2LA scope of calibration capabilities to meet market demand.  The company’s mission is to offer customers the convenience of having all of their metrology product, calibration, and service needs met by one supplier.
