Michael (Mike) Hartzell is the manager of the service department at Hitech Instruments. The year 2015 marks forty one years since Mike first started doing service on microscopes. Mike initially trained with and worked for his father with Perfect Insight Microscope Service and took over operation of the family business in 1978. In January 2007 Perfect Insight Microscope Service was merged into Hitech Instruments and our service area expanded to include the entire Mid Atlantic region.
Over these forty some years Mike has benefitted from associations with all four of the major microscope manufacturers at various times and was able to receive factory training from Nikon, Leica, Olympus and Zeiss.
Mike is a real hands-on manager and still enjoys doing service on location and spends most of his time on the road with our customers.
Mike and his wife Sharon have two adult children and when he is not working he enjoys bicycling, hiking, running and spending time with family.
