Catching Up With PMPA

Precision Plus

The great group of folks who took part in the two-day training session at ZPS America.

Besides being President of Precision Plus, Mike Reader also wears the hat of First Vice President of the Precision Machine Products Association (PMPA). He is now one and a half years into his three-year commitment with the association and path to the association presidency. He says it has been a rewarding journey and one filled with opportunities, as the PMPA leadership team works to redefine itself and the service model for their membership going forward.

Busy Spring at Precision Plus

Precision Plus

Greetings to you from Mike Reader and Precision Plus,

I hope all of you are enjoying the return of warmer weather with all the goodness and emerging greenery it brings. This was originally intended to be a monthly newsletter, but I must admit, it has been a challenge to meet that goal this year with all that has been and is still going on. As I look back to the last newsletter, I see it was sent on March 6th, which was well over two months ago. Time flies when you are having fun, and that is the case, on most days.

A Visit from Phoenix Middle School

Precision Plus

On Friday, May 4th, Precision Plus hosted 30 seventh grade students from Phoenix Middle School in Delavan, along with their math teacher Steve Fouts and math/science teacher Thad Schmitt. The group joined us to explore the relevance of classroom work and how it relates to manufacturing.

2018 – Off to a Great Start

Precision Plus

Where does the time go?

We are now more than 60 days into the new year, and for me it seems like just yesterday, we flipped our calendars to 2018. As I am hearing from most, business is strong and the future looks promising, regardless of the stock market gyrations. But while business activity is strong for us, there is always an invisible cloud of concern for the future, and it keeps us on our toes.

Merry Christmas from Precision Plus!

Precision Plus

“Are you ready for Christmas?” It’s a question you frequently hear (and maybe ask) this time of year. There are those who have been “ready” for weeks now, efficiently checking the items off their list, a little bit at a time. There are others who, year after year, leave it all until the last minute, rushing around up until Christmas Eve. There is still shopping and baking and card mailing to be done! If you are someone that feels stressed out during the holidays, slow down and relax. Remind yourself that it’s not the things that matter, but the people around you.

Precision Plus Designated Green Master

Precision Plus

On December 13th, the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council (WSBC) held their 10th Annual Conference and Green Masters Award luncheon. We are proud to announce that for the second consecutive year, Precision Plus earned recognition as a Green Master, putting us in the top 20% of participants. We would like to thank our facilities manager Neil Fleischhacker and everyone involved who continually work so hard to help us reach our annual sustainability goals.

Reorganization & Recognition

Precision Plus

It’s hard to believe we are now into December, and before we know it, 2017 will be behind us. This year has flown by at a blistering pace, likely because we have been very busy helping our customers grow their businesses through the efforts of a great team of Precision Plus problem solvers. In my last “note” from November 10th when I recapped the previous month’s activity, I also hinted of our internal efforts to realign our org chart, work on our strategic planning, and the recognition of our outstanding team members. I can tell you that much has been done in these areas to better position us for even greater success as we head full steam into 2018.
