It wasn't the center's price tag that made the project so attractive to McBain. Over five years the project will bring several hundred thousand dollars in sales to the firm, but McBain already provides more than $20 million worth of equipment to the electronics and biomedicine sectors annually.
The real draw was the chance to create a high-profile showcase for McBain's razzle-dazzle products and, in the process, cozy up to the UCLA name.
McBain is not losing money on the deal, but "we gave them extremely advantageous pricing and are basically treating them like a long-lost cousin," said Michael Crump, the company's director of sales who served as point man in talks with the school.
...
McBain, whose founder, Carl McBain, is coincidentally a UCLA graduate, put hundreds of hours into preparing its three-hour presentation, going so far as to fly in extra help from out of state.
...
Campagnoni and his advisers eventually winnowed the field down to McBain and a firm representing Zeiss, and each was asked to bring in its equipment for a series of test drives.

Originally named McBain Instruments, the company was founded in 1965 by Carl McBain, an executive from Perkin Elmer who in his earlier years had been a world-famous track star at UCLA.
...
In the same year, McBain also won the 400 hurdles in the U.S. Olympic trials and was voted by sportswriters as most likely to win the gold medal at the Olympic Games, which were canceled because of World War II. In 1989, Carl McBain was named to the UCLA Hall of Fame.
McBain Instruments began as a scientific instrument service company with three employees in the Los Angeles San Fernando Valley and soon added microscopes as their first product line. By the late 1970's, the company had grown to be one of the country's largest microscope distributors, for Olympus and Leitz. At the same time, the company developed a custom engineering and manufacturing business serving the optical inspection needs of the California aerospace, microelectronics and defense contracting industries and by the late 1980's had expanded the company significantly.
In 2000, Michael Crump succeeded Carl McBain as President/CEO and refocused the organization to take advantage of growing industrial market opportunities.
