Kat Brimhall, our Houston Office Administrator, has been handling purchase orders, preparing work orders for billing, processing employee paperwork, audits and collections and working on special projects and tasks as needed for two and a half years now. She takes pride in assisting her coworkers however she is needed, which in turn ensures that things in the office run smoothly while easing the stress and burden of others.  The most challenging part of her job entails bringing past due accounts to current status in an effective manner that still provides the customer with a positive impression of NSM. While collections often leave a bad taste in a customer’s mouth, Kat does a great job in letting the customer know that we do care. Three traits that define Kat are approachable, team player and honest. She thrives on being approachable because she understands how difficult it often is for others not only to admit they need help, but also to ask for it. If it is known that the person being asking for help is going to be open and receptive, things will run more smoothly. Being approachable makes Kat a team player as well; she practices what she preaches as she knows she is a part of the team, and whatever she does to make things easier aids the team as a whole. Kat is not afraid to make a mistake, and, more importantly, to learn from it. If being honest about her mistake helps others to learn and to prevent a similar mistake, NSM benefits. In her words “honesty is important in how we treat our customers as it impacts their view of our integrity and who we are.” Kat relaxes by spending time with her daughter, her brother, her friends and her neighbors, watching movies, walking her dog and, not surprisingly, doing various types of volunteer work. Thanks Kat for everything you do for NSM!

The new PR 6212 compression load cell from Minebea Intec (previously Sartorius) is a state of the art addition to their tank and hopper lineup that works for nearly any vessel application calling for load cells with capacities of up to 22,000 lbs per tank leg. They are NTEP approved for legal for trade applications and FM approved for intrinsically safe applications. There are special epoxy coated versions that offer maximum corrosion resistance which makes them suitable for chemical, food or other harsh industries. There are also special high temperature versions available which can be used for applications with temperatures up to 180C. With the Class C1 accuracy of 0.04%, a 15 year warranty and the PR 6012 mounting kits with lift-off protection that make installation quick and easy, you can see why the PR 6212 is leading its class.

Contact the experts at Nicol Scales & Measurement to learn about Minebea Intec’s (formerly Sartorius) load cell and indicator offering for vessels and silos.

If you’ve ever called our Dallas branch, chances are you’ve talked to NSM’s outstanding Service Assistant, Naomi Hughes. Naomi is really a jack of all Customer Service related trades; she has been handling many aspects of customer service including assisting with special requests, updating calibration agreements, estimating the cost of parts & equipment repair and scheduling since January 2014. Three traits that define Naomi are responsible, adaptable and compatible. She constantly strives to make each and every customer feel important and feels rewarded when NSM’s customers are happy. Naomi enjoys spending time with friends, maybe at the lake or maybe somewhere else outdoors. Thank you Naomi for all you do in making Nicol Scales & Measurement successful!

Our Austin branch is off to a great start securing new calibration customers. While conducting an internal audit, an Austin business repeatedly incurred a 4% error. NSM calibrated and tested both the inbound and outbound truck scales and confirmed a mechanical issue on the inbound truck scale which hindered proper operation. NSM replaced all the worn suspension components and load cells and re-leveled the scale. The scale was then re-calibrated and tested for proper operation. NSM was able to minimize the percent error between inbound and outbound scales to .02%, a percent decrease of 99.5%. All in all a great job by Daniel not only to diagnose the previously overlooked problem but also to provide a solution, solidifying our relationship with this customer for years to come.

Innovative, determined and committed, the three words chosen by Daniel Speegle - NSM’s Austin field manager - to describe himself, are all necessary characteristics with his dream job as an inventor. Lucky for him, and for NSM, Daniel gets to use his skills to research solutions for real world problems. He’s had the opportunity to design and spec a weighing system that not only weighed the commodity, but controlled the ventilation system for the filling room, monitored the O2 level and operated as an accounting and billing database that was easily converted to the customers bookkeeping software. When he’s not brainstorming Daniel enjoys spending time with his family whether that be exploring, traveling, going for bike rides or swimming on the Blanco River. His family holds weekly movie nights, and they share the best part of their day over dinner each night. Hopefully Daniel’s relate to his exciting new job at NSM. Please contact us if you have a problem that necessitates an innovative solution!
