About Us


Transcat Canada, A Rich History

Transmation Canada was founded in 1977 as part of Transmation Inc, a Rochester, NY based manufacturer. In 1992, Transcat opened its first Canadian calibration lab in Mississauga, ON and was one of the first commercial labs to achieve ISO-9001 registration. As we grew our operations, we expanded and opened our second lab in Ottawa.

Transcat Canada has further expanded our presence in Canada through the acquisitions of other leading calibration companies in Canada.

Cal-Matrix, Ulrich Metrology, Nordcal and Dispersion Laboratory are now part of Transcat Canada. Transcat Canada is the largest provider of accredited calibration and dimensional inspection services in Canada. We also offer test and measurement instrument sales and equipment rental through our US parent company, Transcat. Transcat Canada combined with Transcat’s network of labs across North America, offers unparalleled accredited calibration services and dimensional inspection services.
