Scott Ayer

Director of Quality and Compliance

When it comes to quality, our customers depend on our products to provide confidence in their measurements so they can perform their research or make decisions about their manufacturing processes. Lake Shore’s employees take great pride in their workmanship and the quality of the products we produce. I enjoy being able to interact with employees from all areas of the organization to continuously improve our products and processes.
