J.A. King, an ISO 17025 accredited precision measurement company based in Greensboro, N.C., announced plans to acquire B & C Instruments, Inc., a Huntsville, Ala.-based calibration and inspection laboratory.

The purchase of B & C Instruments further increases J.A. King’s market share in Alabama and expands its calibration and repair capability in multiple industries throughout the region.

“B & C Instruments works with customers in the same target industries as J.A. King, so they’re a great fit for us,” says John King, chief executive officer of J.A. King. “We can also offer them additional benefits, like an entire custom engineering department and consulting, training and audit prep services.”

J.A. King will maintain operations at the Huntsville facility with minimal disruption to service.

“We’re excited to welcome the Huntsville team to our company,” adds King. “As we move forward, we plan to uphold and expand B & C’s high level of customer service for all of Northern Alabama.”
