Meet the Quoting Department!

Liberty Calibration's quoting department is the first contact point with our customers, and their knowledge and professionalism is often what keeps our customers coming back.

When asked why she decided to send her equipment to Liberty, Virginia from Met Labs said,
"Quick email responses from Cindy Schechinger. Reliable and quick turnarounds."

Cindy Schechinger

Cindy started at Liberty Labs in 1997.

What is your day-to-day role now?

My current role is quoting/scheduling and sales/marketing.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

The most rewarding part of my job is working with our clients! I enjoy building new relationships with our clients and being part of their day to day operations as well.

What is the most challenging part of your job?

Scheduling seems to be the most challenging. Because of our remote area, shipping companies typically pick-up/deliver once a day. Meeting client deadlines can get tricky, especially around the holiday season. Knowing everything works out for the client in the end is a great feeling!

What has been your favorite project you were involved with at Liberty Calibration?

There have been a number of projects that I have enjoyed over the years. A few of my favorite things have been the construction of the 50 x 80 Meter Ground Plane, the MARS Project, releasing an Eagle at Liberty Labs, helping find a neighbor lost in the cornfield and all the other community projects we are able to help out with.

What do you like to do to relax when you are not at work?

When not at work, I keep busy with the kidsí activities. I enjoy going to all school/sport functions with them. I also like to be outdoors messing with my flowers, gardening and having late night bonfires with my family.

 

When he required a fast turnaround with 17025 data, John from Schneider Electric said,
"Ashley and the rest of the team has worked to make this last minute thrash look like it might actually work in time. Thanks for saving the day!"

Ashley Gormley

Ashley started at World Cal in 2007.

What is your day-to-day role now, and what other jobs have you held in this company?

Iíve held a few different positions. I started in shipping/receiving. A few months after that I took on quoting/scheduling for World Cal. About a year after being here I started working in the lab doing calibrations when I wasnít busy in shipping/receiving. I did all of that and within the last year and a half Iíve transitioned to just quoting/scheduling and sales/marketing.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

The best part of my job is the customers. I really enjoy building relationships with our customers and being able to help them out and make them happy.

What is the most challenging part of your job?

Scheduling, trying to fit everyone in for on-sites and in-house work when they need it and itís usually a time crunch or last minute request. Makes me very happy when we can make it happen!

What has been your favorite project that you were involved with at Liberty Calibration?

My favorite thing has been some of the volunteer projects weíve done in the community. Itís fun to get away from the desk for a day and help do something outside of our normal routine. My favorite one was making pancakes for the RAGBRAI riders.

What do you like to do to relax when you are not at work?

I enjoy doing things with my husband and kids, baking, going to a class at the gym and curling up on the couch with a warm blanket watching movies or a good TV series.

I feel that Ashley and Cindy make a great team and get quotes out in a very timely fashion. Their years of experience help in answering more technical questions than most in their position are capable of at other companies. This fast quoting service along with excellent turn time for calibration saves our clients a lot of time and money. - Nate Potts, Lab Manager of Liberty Labs

Schwarzbeck Spotlight: AM 9144

Photo of the AM 9144 antenna mast

The AM 9144 antenna tripod has been newly improved! It can now be ordered with a glass fiber foot that can be interchanged with the stainless steel foot (the previous glass fiber foot was not able to be changed out). The new glass fiber foot will increase the field strength, as it lowers coupling between the antenna and the foot.

This antenna tripod is very versatile, with many options available for your needs. You can purchase the telescopic mast, the foot of your choice, and wheels/extender pieces, for a custom solution. And now Schwarzbeck offers a solution to rotate large horn antennas on the AM 9144 using the PDG 9211 (also available for the large BBHA 9120 F, see photo on left).

While the glass fiber foot can compensate for slight ground unevenness, on very uneven ground, the stainless steel foot is still recommended.

Available options:
