Elkhorn, WI (May 25th, 2021) – Since the Precision Plus Youth Apprenticeship Program’s inception back in 2013, students have been learning hands-on how to maintain technology that is the foundation of Swiss Machining.

Bringing in New Technology Doesn’t Mean Out with the Tornos

It’s no secret Precision Plus has invested a great deal to procure the latest technology. In January, we brought in 2 additional Star SW-20’s to round out a trio of high-volume, state-of-the-art Swiss machines. In 2020, equipment acquisitions included 2 Star SW-12RII’s along with a 2nd Brother R650XI Speedio Vertical Milling Center with a twin pallet and Nikken 4th axis table. These additions to the fleet join other high-tech equipment such as our collaborative robot, Sawyer, the Hardinge super precision lathe, and our variety of Swiss CNC Star machines.

A Year in Review From Precision Plus

December 23rd, 2020 (Elkhorn, WI) – As we enter the final weeks of an unpredictable year, I’d first like to reflect on the many Pluses of 2020 before looking forward to 2021. January was a great month for shipment and business activity in general. Our industry trade association, the Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA) hosted its annual Strategic Planning session in Cape Coral, FL. It was good to spend time with industry colleagues, competitors, and staff. The collective wisdom of the group has helped us navigate difficult times in the past and I was happy to contribute.

Much to Be Thankful for in November

Precision Plus

November 1st, 2020 (Elkhorn, WI) – Even though we were unable to invite members of our community into the Precision Plus facility to celebrate with us this year, we still had a great Manufacturing Month. Not only was production strong as ever, but also employee morale was up. Some of the added fun can be attributed to WOW (Work of Winners) Wheel Wednesdays, when each employee had the opportunity to spin for a variety of prizes. I had the distinct honor of being the most sought out prize on the wheel, “$100 CASH from Mike!”, which was well worth it when I saw how much excitement and energy our team had from this weekly activity. Thankfully for me, the wheel wasn’t weighted, and our employees saw a wide range of winnings from delivered lunch of their choice to various gift cards. Though Manufacturing Month 2020 has come to end, we will continue to celebrate here at Precision Plus, where every day is Manufacturing Day.

Precision Plus Kicks off a Month of Celebration – Manufacturing Month 2020

Precision Plus

As summer officially comes to an end and we enter one of my favorite months, it seems fitting to reflect. As many of you know, October is Manufacturing Month in the state of Wisconsin, and the first Friday of October (October 2nd, 2020) is National Manufacturing Day. Manufacturing makes up a huge portion of Wisconsin’s economy and workforce, and we are blessed to be a part of such a great industry. Before we delve into why I am thankful for the manufacturing industry, let’s look back on the history of Manufacturing Day.
