Meet the Team

Calwest Services and Loadcell Supplies are proud to say we have an extremely well qualified and stable workforce. Lina, Narelle and Lisa look after the office and Bart, Busiman, Dom and Wayne perform calibrations and other technically based work in the workshop.

Office Staff

Lina Carvalho

Lina is our Office Manager and the glue that holds the place together. Having worked for Loadcell Supplies for 15 years, Lina knows a fair bit about our products and services! If you have any queries about our products, please don’t hesitate to give Lina a call.

Narelle Crichton

Narelle is our Compliance Officer and is responsible for NATA reports and ensuring our office runs smooth. Narelle knows most coffee shops in Perth – if you need advice on where to get your caffeine fix – just ask Narelle.

Lisa Colley

Lisa is our Compliance and Accreditation Manager who also manages to keep her busy lifestyle and family all in check whilst squeezing in the odd ½ marathon.

Technical Staff

Wayne Galbraith

Wayne is the Managing Director of both Loadcell Supplies and Calwest Services. Wayne is dedicated to the science and engineering industry, having worked in the technical ‘hands on’ side of this industry for 35years.

Wayne is a NATA signatory in the discipline of calibration as well as being a NATA assessor, also in the discipline of calibration.

Bart Thompson

Bart is our Workshop Manager and an institution at Loadcell Supplies and Calwest Services. Bart has a trade cert in Fitting and Machining and brings a wealth of mechanical knowledge to the table.

Bart is also known for his eclectic taste in music. If you know who ‘The Derek Trucks Band’, ‘Hawkwind’ and ‘Yes’ are then you know exactly what we mean. Chances are – if you visit us one day and don’t know the music – Bart will have got to the stereo first.

Busiman Dube

Busiman is our electronic technician / calibration technician for whom nothing is too much trouble. Busiman seems to take it all in his stride – calibrating torque wrenches, load cells and stressing jacks – all in a days work. Word has it Busiman may have played one or two games of soccer in history and is threatening to come out of retirement one day.

Dominique Bugnon

Dom is our newest staff member and brings with him an international flavour being a Swiss national. Dom is adapting to the rigours of calibration coming from an electrical / electronic background. Dom is also our resident fitness guy – competing in Ironman and MTB races all over the world.


Tig is the office mutt who recently joined Loadcell Supplies and Calwest Services and is here to remind us that the office / lab environment is not all it is cracked up to be. Sometimes you’re just over it and either have to chew your dog bone or sleep.
