McCallum Testing Laboratories
Claude “Mackie” McCallum founded McCallum Inspections in 1928. The company inspected timber, including poles for Virginia Electric and Power Company (VEPCO), railroad ties, and various lumber operations. The company developed well drilling capability and around 1965, McCallum Testing Laboratories began drilling operations to perform soil sampling and laboratory testing of soil, asphalt, and concrete. McCallum additionally worked on construction inspection for the Virginia Department of Transportation’s construction of Interstate 64 from I-264 to Bowers Hill. In 1972, McCallum Testing Laboratories was incorporated.

In 2014, former owners John Pritchard and Richard Seage sold McCallum Testing Laboratories to two long-time employees: Charlotte Ebbert, Professional Geologist, and Jon Ebbert, Professional Engineer.
