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.

Happy Thanksgiving

Precision Plus

As the big day draws near, many of us are scrambling to cram five days of work into three, while preparing for Thanksgiving Day. I’ve always enjoyed this holiday that focuses on three of my favorite things: family, food and fun times together. At Precision Plus, no other holiday allows for two days off right before a weekend, giving us a whopping four days in a row to relax and unwind! We are grateful for that, especially knowing that other industries and organizations do not always have that luxury. I encourage people to focus on quality time together when they have the chance to make the time.

2017 Fluid Power Action Challenge

Precision Plus

The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) recently held their 10th Annual Fluid Power Action Challenge at Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). Through the Fluid Power Challenge, NFPA and MSOE hope to encourage students to select more mathematics and science courses in their high school curricula and to keep their options open for technology-based post-secondary studies. The Fluid Power Challenge consists of a Workshop Day and a Challenge Day.

Last Friday, November 10th, S.C. Johnson CEO Fisk Johnson and the S.C. Johnson team hosted the historic signing of the Foxconn Technology Group contract, bringing a projected $10 billion investment, 20 million + square feet, and up to 13,000 high tech jobs to southeastern Wisconsin. 

Manufacturing Month Wrap-Up

Precision Plus

For the past several years, October has been proclaimed Manufacturing Month by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). To help promote their mission to change the outdated perceptions of American Manufacturing, NAM has encouraged manufactures all over the country to open their doors, hosting tours and events for community members of all ages. While it is targeted as the first Friday in October, we like to say, “Every day is Manufacturing Day for Precision Plus.”
