Precision Plus

In the spring of 2015, the community of Elkhorn, Wisconsin, was asked to vote on a school referendum to the tune of $20,420,000.  This was a serious decision for voters in the midst of much economic uncertainty, but the community responded with 62.8% of the votes in favor of the school investment that would update the infrastructure, most notably, the reinvestment in the Technical Education wing of the high school building.

Precision Plus Says Goodbye to Our Summer Interns

Precision Plus

Summer is coming to an end, and it is time for Precision Plus to say goodbye to our summer interns. Over the last few months, we have gotten to know these intelligent and talented students, as they received a real “hands-on” education. They now have the opportunity to apply what they have learned on the shop floor to what they are studying in school. Some interns will be returning to school, some will be graduating soon, and some will move onto other internships.  No matter where they are headed, we feel fortunate that we were a part of their journey.

Independence Day 2016

Precision Plus

This July 4th our nation celebrates 240 years of our independence from foreign rule. Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison, and others, were courageous patriots who put country above all else, and they saw a nation with potential for greatness. They imagined an America where the people had a deep sense of individualism and personal responsibility. Our founders set a standard, and if here today, they would find a kindred spirit in the visionaries and modern-day patriots who believe in hard work and perseverance.
