Complete Calibration Solutions

Established in 1968, Northern Instrument & Calibrations Services (NICS) specialise in calibration, repair and sales of testing and measuring instruments for a wide range of industries including mining, manufacturing, health services and defence. Located in Newcastle, NSW, our purpose-built workshop and laboratory houses state-of-the-art calibration and testing technologies certified to NATA standards and utilised in accordance with Australian and International Standards and Manufacturer specifications. We are also well-equipped to provide onsite calibrations services adhering to the same standards.

At NICS we are committed to providing our clients with the highest standard of quality calibration, sales and repair services. Our accredited ISO9001:2015 Quality Management System, along with our outstanding team of highly skilled and dedicated personnel, ensures that we provide our clients with the highest calibre of service, adhering to national standards, manufacturer specifications and our client’s requirements.

At NICS, we understand that the maintenance of our client’s instruments and equipment is extremely important. Calibration provides certainty, security, and confidence in the measurement results you record with your measuring instruments. Regular calibration ensures reliable performance of measuring instruments. Furthermore, damaged, malfunctioning, or out-of-calibration instruments may provide inaccurate readings and data leading to costly errors and safety liabilities.

NICS also understands that the processes for managing regular calibration maintenance can place strain on the resources of a business. NICS takes the strain out of this process by providing a full calibration and maintenance service, both inhouse and onsite. We endeavour to provide a service that is cost-effective without jeopardising our pledge to provide instrument calibration and repair services of the very highest quality.
