Service Associates

Southwest Precision Instruments is a member of Service Associates.  Membership is by invitation only, and all of the members are owners of their businesses.
We meet annually to discuss emerging trends in microscopy, new products on the market, service and repair issues, problem resolutions and workshops on microscope repairs. With approximately 250 years of combined experience, we’re capable of solving just about any microscope-related problem. You can’t go wrong when you call a member of Service Associates!
Most of us cover extended areas and neighboring states from our home bases. Contact the nearest member of Service Associates to find out if you’re in our territory. Meet the team!
