George Decker, Director, Supply Chain, R&D TE Connectivity (TE SubCom)
"Randy and his team at Custom-Cal have consistently provided low cost, high
quality telecom test equipment maintenance and calibration services to
my company for over five years. He has always been the lowest cost
provider and we have always been completely satisfied with the work.
Randy has a deep knowledge of industry standards and hardware from all
manufacturers and he uses that to target the essential work on all
pieces, maximizing value for the customer."
Paul Reese, Senior Metrologist at The Bionetics Corp
"Randy has established Custom-Cal as the premier laboratory for the service
and repair of Test & Measurement equipment, which is beyond the
capability of other labs. He has expert knowledge of RF, microwave, and
optical instrumentation that spans many decades and is able to provide
quick, efficient service for this equipment. Where others fall short, Randy
excels and has breathed new life into mission-critical equipment which has
kept our current systems running with minimal downtime. His support has
saved us countless man-hours by eliminating the need to re-engineer new
equipment into existing processes. He has selected highly talented people
with the experience and technical expertise to tackle the difficult problems
that no one else wants to touch. While this has been invaluable to our
organization, Randy provides these services at a cost that is below what
one might expect. In a highly competitive world, he is in a class by himself
and has grown Custom-Cal into a superb customer-oriented company that
lives up to its reputation."
Tim Gase, President/Owner, FoCos Optix
"Custom-Cal for almost a year now and their expertise, experience and
customer-first attitude, have provided me with a lucrative revenue path
helping to grow and build my company and mI have been working with
Randy and y bottom line. Randy has found a niche that few others have
explored, providing cost-effective repair services for optical, RF and
microwave test equipment that is old, out of warranty, or in some cases,
even obsolete. The Custom-Cal services have saved my customers 10's of
thousands of dollars on the cost of new equipment replacements as well
as the exorbitant in-warranty calibration and repair costs charged by the
test equipment OEMs."
Ronald Parrott, President and CTO, VIDA Products, Inc.
My company, VIDA Products, reconditions specialized microwave components
and we do business with Custom Cal. Randy is a delight to work with
because of both his comprehensive knowledge of test and measurement
equipment, and business integrity.
Bruce Nyman, Director Product Realization TE Subsea Com.
"I have worked with Randy both at JDSU and now at Custom-Cal. His work
has always addressed my calibration and repair needs. Randy has been
able to come up with solutions that have allowed us to repair equipment
rather than replace it. This has saved us tens of thousands of dollars."
Louis Amabile, General Manager at Recon Test Equipment
"I have known Randy over 15 years. I have always found him true to his word
and an expert in his field. One of the things I like best about Randy - he
is always available to share his knowledge and answer any questions."
Andrew Fox, Cisco Systems, Inc.
"I have worked with Randy over the years for my test equipment calibration or
repair requirements. Randy would go the extra mile for me when I need test
equipment either repaired and or calibrated when other companies would
refuse to try. This includes the original manufacturers of the equipment as
well. I believe that Randy and Custom Calibration is a company to go to for
all your needs."
Michael Sage, General Manager, Express Calibration Services
"Randy and I met at the NCSLI Convention in Washington D.C. and we are
thinking of partnering in order to expand our combined capabilities. From that
initial meeting I was comfortable working with and entrusting business to
Custom-Cal and trust Randy's business will provide quality work."
Ed Piekos, MTS, PCB Design Maxim Integrated Products
"Randy is a pleasure to deal with and an expert in complex test equipment
repair and calibration. We used Custom-Cal mainly for repair services and
they were by far the most reasonably priced, while providing unique
solutions and alternatives to issues that came up. I strongly endorse Randy
and Custom-Cal for any calibration or repairs needs."
Joe D'Agostino, President, Amplitude
"Randy Yousey is my business colleague. He is very serious about performing
to the best of his ability in our industry. In working with Randy, I realized
quickly that he has a very strong work ethic and tirelessly pursues perfection
in every endeavor he approaches."
Marc LoPonte, Acclaim Test
"Randy and Custom-Cal have done extensive repair and calibration of Test
Equipment work for several Test equipment resellers I have managed.
Custom-Cal repairs Telecom and Test instruments that others won't touch at
a huge savings. Randy's specialty is Light wave Fiber Optic test equipment,
but we have also been very happy with the work performed on RF and
General Test instruments. Randy has always been flexible, and been able to
accommodate rush orders; has offered creative and effective solutions to
keep costs down. I would give him my highest recommendation without
reservation for any service he and his company provides."
Peter Mols, Project Manager, JDSU
"Randy managed the instrument calibration and repair department at JDSU in
New Jersey. The type of equipment he was dealing with ranged from
handheld multi meters to 10Gb/s BER analyzers, and from SMUs to optical
spectral analyzers. He was and is a master in finding pragmatic yet
thorough solutions to keep production lines running. After the site closure of
JDSU in New Jersey Randy started his own business in calibration and
repair of this type of equipment and the success of Custom-Cal shows he is
still on top of his game."
Kirk Oschmann, Senior Staff Test Engineer at Motorola
"I have always been impressed with Randy's broad knowledge of test
equipment with regard to calibration and repair. He has been great to work
with for finding obsolete equipment and repairing equipment no longer
supported by the OEM."
Steve Le Caz, CEO, www.vitalinput.com

Market for Custom-Cal. During this time, I’ve come to recognize some
priceless qualities he has: a commitment to customers and colleagues
rarely seen these days ; an in-depth product knowledge reminiscent of
experts I knew at Marconi ; a hands-on CEO with ‘can-do’ confidence ; an
open-minded approach to Problem-Solving and Innovation. I am absolutely
