Melanie Cagle

Melanie Cagle is the Founder and Owner of QualiCal LLC, an ISO 17025 Accredited calibration company servicing all manufacturing operations in the greater Gulf Coast region. Melanie has spent most of her working career in the oilfield. The largest part of her career was in Quality and Safety during which, the most time was spent teaching. She is an accredited and certified calibration technician and is highly knowledgeable about precision measurement and metrology.

Melanie has grown with QualiCal as did her knowledge about Thread Inspection and it actually became a passion. With the growth of QualiCal she wanted to expand the products and services offered to her customer base. Most notable was the increased demand for training classes and demonstrations and so The QualiCal Academy was born.

Quality control is a very important aspect to a successful manufacturing facility, and B&B strives on continuous improvement to ensure the highest possible quality to our customers. In our industry our customers have very high tolerances to comply with and the proper inspection of our products helps us ensure this. We do this by facilitating initial and ongoing training in dimensional inspection along with other areas to employees.

I most highly recommend Melanie Cagle and her team at The Qualical Academy for the multiple areas of online training that is available. The online training gives us the flexibility to facilitate training to our employees without compromising production hours, helping us keep our schedule for on time delivery. It is very cost effective in that there is no travel and or classroom rental expense to incur. We will continue to use this portal for training of B&B employees as well as use all other services that Qualical offers.

Pinnacle Oilfield Inspection Services LLC has been using QualiCal for over 3 years for all of our calibration needs. The service is awesome. They have recently started doing online training courses and I had the opportunity to take the online Thread Inspection Course. Since it was an online course, I got to take it whenever I had time. Some of it was taken online from work, but most of it was done from home. The Thread Inspection Course was easy to follow. The videos that Melanie did were very interesting. If QualiCal had not started online courses, I wouldn’t have been able to learn more about inspection. I look forward to taking more courses. Thank you Melanie Cagle and QualiCal, I now have another certification. I highly recommend Qualical to anyone needing their services.
