Houston’s Top Calibration & Metrology Lab

Rothe Development, Inc. has been providing calibration services for over 49 years beginning with Precision Measurement Equipment Laboratory (PMEL) at Kelly AFB, San Antonio, TX. in 1973. Since then, our knowledge and skills have earned customer trust across the military, aerospace, medical, academia, energy, and various other commercial and government sectors. Since 2006 we have been a part of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) mission by providing calibration services to testing equipment and flight hardware for the International Space Station and NASA’s space partners. In 2016, Rothe’s Houston Commercial Laboratory became accredited in ANSI/NCSL Z540.3 becoming one of the only Houston area facilities to achieve such an accreditation.
