When a small machine shop opened on Ash Street in Waltham, MA in 1896, nobody could have known it would grow into a leading force in the manufacture of precision measuring instruments used around the world. Through the genius of founder Bliss Charles Ames, the first "dial gage heads" were built in 1906, thus laying the groundwork for today's highly sophisticated gaging systems.
