Happy New Year, everyone!
On behalf of both teams at Precision Plus and Iseli Precision, we hope your celebrations this holiday season were joyous, healthy, safe and in good spirits with friends, family and loved ones. As we look back on another remarkable year that was 2023, we are just as eager and excited to see what 2024 has in store for all of us here in Southeast Wisconsin.
Following our acquisition of Iseli Precision in May 2023, I’m filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude for our teams and external partners. It’s to each of you – our dedicated employees and your families, our clients, our suppliers and vendors, our community and education partners – that we owe a huge thank you. Your unwavering support and commitment during this time and throughout all of 2023 didn’t just help us through the year – it was the cornerstone of our success.
We know it wasn’t easy. It took more than just hard work; it took patience, understanding, and a whole lot of team spirit; in the end, for it we are better together.
In line with these exciting developments in 2024, we are continuing to align our internal and external strategies to better serve supporters and partners like you! Beginning this month, we will be merging Precision Plus’s monthly email blasts with those of Iseli Precision under the umbrella of our parent company, Reader Precision Solutions. This integration signifies more than just a merger of channels; it represents the fusion of industry knowledge, insights, and innovations from two pioneering entities in the precision machining industry.
As we look to 2024, our integration of both companies will continue and will be focused on enhancing our company’s culture, expanding our reach to our existing and prospective clients, streamlining our engineering, production, and quality assurance processes, and continuing the alignment of our engagement initiatives with our partners in the community, non-profit, and educational sectors.
These efforts are directed towards ensuring that we continue to be the preferred partner for precision machined components and solutions, as well as being an engaged community member in Southeast Wisconsin.
As we look across the horizon to 2024, we’re filled with anticipation for the unwritten chapters that lie ahead. The journey we’ve embarked on – marked by unity, growth, passion, and innovation – sets the stage for exciting possibilities that we look forward to sharing as the year progresses.
Together, with our teams and partners like you, we will continue to embrace new opportunities, overcome challenges, and make this year another milestone in our shared success. On behalf of the entire RPS team and family, we wish you all a year filled with prosperity, good fortune, and success. Here’s to the adventures awaiting us in 2024.
