Who's Who
of Long Island Indicator Service


John William Garand retired as president of Long Island Indicator Service in 2018.

New Hampshire native of British and Canadian-French stock, he was the US coordinator of sales for Compac (Switzerland) before he joined us. He created an expanded network of distributors in the US for the company.

He has published more than 30 volumes of poetry under the name JWGrum. They are available from Amazon and the iTunes Store.


Roy Meyer, Long Island born and educated, first-class machinist, has hands-on knowledge on gage applications.

He learned his trade at BOCES and subsequently worked as a prototype machinist at both Beucher Laboratories and Robotic Vision Systems on Long Island. He was a member of the team which installed robotic inspection equipment at the Philadelphia Naval Ship Yards.

Roy has assumed the position of President of Long Island Indicator Service as of 2018.


René Meyer was the indicator and sales specialist from 1980 to 2017.

In the summer of 1967 he helped design the Compac and Etalon spare parts lists for the US market. His first encounter with precision instruments was weekends spent assembling the Alina Model 88 test indicators.

René has written five indicator repair manuals and two reference guides which are available from Amazon.com


The name of George Meyer was well known among old-timers who had occasion to do business with Alina Corporation during the 1960's and 70's. He was the chief service technician at that time and taught us the ins, the outs, the techniques, and the high standards required of reliable repair work.

When he left Alina Corporation (after more than 20 years) he expanded on his small family business, incorporated, and gave us all our training.

George passed away in September, 2011 at the age of 83.


Peter Meyer, the grand-son of George, is currently serving an apprenticeship with Long Island Indicator Service under the tutelage of his uncle René and his father Roy.

He is already well skilled in the repairs of several brands of test indicators.

He will be joining the company in 2019.
