Manufacturing Day Open House 2019

Precision Plus

Winter is coming. Or rather, it has arrived.

The Precision Plus team closed out October, also known as Manufacturing Month, with a snowstorm. When I was young, receiving 6 inches of snow at the end of October was fun, but not so much anymore. Let’s hope this is not a sign of what the rest of the season has in store for us.

Celebrating with Precision Plus

Precision Plus

It is hard to believe, but the holiday season is already here! With the incredibly busy last few months that Precision Plus experienced, it is easy to feel as if fall flew by in the blink of an eye, and suddenly winter is upon us. In addition to sponsoring Operation Exploration IMTS 2018 in September and hosting many visitors during October for Manufacturing Month, there were a few additional exciting events that occurred within the organization.

Announcing our updated Brand and Website


It is hard to imagine 7 years have gone by since our last website overhaul in the summer of 2009.  Much has changed in the world and at Precision Plus since then, so the website update was long overdue.  For those of you that do not live within this digital space, like us, you are well aware that this process requires a time commitment that gets added on to already full days.  So we are happy and relieved about this launch!

While grinding through this with guidance from our new partners at Identity Works, it became apparent the time was right to review and refresh our brand identity.  Looking back at the older material, we could see room for improvement, yet we were still very attached to some elements.  In the end, we all agreed on cleaning things up with a cleaner, more modern look, while retaining a piece of our legacy brand.

Our new website is importantly mobile responsive, includes cleaner imagery, and features the updated logo to carry us forward.  Like it or not, feel free to share your thoughts on any of the new materials. Some of it took time to grow on us, but, ultimately, we are proud of the results and thankful for all the hard work of the team.  Please take time to click through the website, read through the materials, and drop us a note if you find something we overlooked, so that we may correct it quickly.

Finally, we believe our updated brand and website better reflect the capabilities and skills of the team we have here at Precision Plus, as well as the work we do for our fantastic partners. We hope you agree that our efforts these past several months have paid off. Moving ahead, we look forward to strengthening our partnerships with our customers, vendors, and the education community.  Wishing all of you the very best and thanks in advance for any feedback you wish to share.

Christmas Reflections by Mike Reader

Time through the Hands of the Young of Yesteryear

To me, and many others of my generation, the notion that time goes by more quickly the older we get, is actually becoming a reality.

When we were young, there seemed to be an eternity from one Christmas to the next. Remember when you were “five and a quarter” or “six and a half?” Looking back, I have fond memories of waiting for the Sears and the JC Penney Christmas catalogs to arrive—by U.S. Postal Service—sometime in early September. Plenty of time to dream about Christmas presents…   My sisters and I would flip through every page, front to back, looking for the latest in toys, so we could show our parents and put them on our Christmas lists.

Does Political Action Make a Difference?

Michael Reader

On December 1 and 2, 2015, seven representatives from member companies of the Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA) flew into Washington, DC to meet with congressional representatives, senators and committee staff to discuss the impact that inaction on the part of the U.S. Congress has had on the industry.
