Precision Resource is pleased to announce that its Mexico Division has officially opened a heat treat facility in Saltillo.

Heat treating is a specialized process that aids in hardening material to meet customer part strength requirements. While Precision Resource was providing this service using outside suppliers, adding this strategically located facility will help PRMX be more responsive to local demand.

“This new heat treatment facility will use new state of the art furnaces with advanced process control capabilities in order to reduce process variation resulting in the more repeatable performance of our customers’ components” said Kaveh Vafaei, Precision Resource’s Director of International Operations.  “Vertically integrating heat treating within our plant in Saltillo, creates a specific opportunity to improve the total quality of our products requiring heat treatment. Being able to fineblank and heat treat in adjacent facilities will create a constant feedback loop in real time in order to improve the overall quality and consistency of our products”.

Located in Saltillo, Coahuila, the Precision Resource Mexico specializes in the supply of high-volume and high-tonnage fineblanked components and assemblies.  The division supplies its products primarily to the automotive and heavy-duty markets.  The division also employs an array of secondary finishing technologies, including grinding and machining that coupled with heat treating enables them to supply complete ready to assemble component solutions to its customers.

Fineblanking is a high precision metal forming process used extensively in the automotive, heavy duty, electronics, medical, lawn and garden, and general industrial industries.  This unique process creates parts with very tight dimensional tolerances, excellent flatness, and with very little variation from part-to-part throughout long production runs.  These characteristics lead designers to specify fineblanked components for their most critical applications.

Precision Resource has seven production facilities globally.  The company operates plants in Huntington Beach, CA; Shelton, CT; Mt. Sterling, KY; Vernon Hills, IL; Cambridge, Ontario, Hangzhou, China and Saltillo, Mexico as well as a Technical Center in Canada.

Illinois Division Makes a Move

Illinois Division Makes a Move

Precision Resource, Inc. announced that it’s Illinois Division has moved to a new facility…

Precision Resource, Inc. announced that its Illinois Division has moved into a new facility at 700 Hickory Hill Drive, Vernon Hills, Illinois.

Customers and employees alike are excited about the new, state-of-the-art building. The Illinois Team had been evaluating alternative manufacturing locations after the acquisition of Chicago Fineblanking Corporation in 2001. Initially, the division looked at adding on to the existing building, but the cost of expansion plus the cost of renovating to meet both Precision Resource standards and customer expectations turned out to be almost as costly as starting over.

“So, that’s what we did,” Curt Krueger, Division Manager, summed up. “We looked all over northern Illinois for the ideal location. And wouldn’t you know we finally found it right here, in our own back yard.” The site of the new building is literally around the corner from the former division location.

Architects completed plans for a 60,000 sq. ft. addition and the renovation of an existing 30,000 sq. ft. building on the site, for a total of 90,000 sq. ft. Future expansion is also possible. Builders broke ground in July 2007, and a Move Strategy Team was assembled to plan a smooth move and transition to the new building. Customer requalification activity took place throughout the move.

“We’re all enthusiastic about this change; it’s a great building in a great location, and it really enhances our ability to meet our customers’ needs,” concludes Division Manager Curt Krueger.

Located in Vernon Hills, IL, the Illinois Division specializes in the supply of complex components and assemblies using the fineblanking technology. The company markets its products to the automotive, electronics, power tool, and industrial markets primarily.

PR Employess Planning at Meeting - PR Adds Technical Center

Precision Resource Adds Technical Center

Precision Resource Canada, Ltd., a leading supplier of precision metal components manufactured with the fineblanking technology, today announced that it has established a new Technical Center…

Precision Resource, Inc., a leading supplier of precision metal components manufactured with the fineblanking technology, today announced that it has established a new Technical Center at 10 Cherry Blossom Road, Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, right next door to the Cambridge Plant, an existing production facility.

As part of a broad-based reorganization plan, production from the company’s former Kitchener Plant has been transferred to the Cambridge Plant and other Precision Resource facilities.  A core group of employees from the Kitchener Plant, including Division Manager, Kaveh Vafaei, are managing and staffing the new facility.  The Technical Center will design and build fineblank tooling for all Precision Resource production facilities and be the center of development for the company’s fineblanking technology.

“The Kitchener plant was a leased building that was not well suited to the new focus of the group,” company President Peter Wolcott said.  “The new building is purpose-designed to maximize efficiency and will be an excellent showcase for our capabilities.” In addition to housing a fully equipped tool room and a PATEC fine-cold-forming press, one 630 ton fineblanking press also will be installed there.  The fineblanking press will be used for tool trials, developmental projects and selected production jobs.

“Another advantage of our location is that many of the engineering offices of our key automotive customers are close by in Ontario and the greater Detroit area, so we are better able to support our customers on advance projects,” Kaveh Vafaei says.

Research and development will be another important facet of the Technical Center’s mission.  “The Technical Center will be an ideal incubator to develop important new processes and will help the whole company push the state of the art in fineblanking and other cold forming technologies,” states Corporate Engineering Director Mark Polatsek.

Headquartered in Shelton, CT, Precision Resource specializes in the supply of complex components and assemblies using the fineblanking technology.  The company markets its products to the automotive, electronics, power tool, and industrial markets primarily.  The company also employs a wide array of secondary finishing technologies, including double disc grinding, fine-grinding, honing, plastic over-molding, and CNC machining, in order to supply very tightly toleranced complete solutions to its customers.

The expansion of Precision Resource Canada’s facility added 30,000 ft² of production space and increased the total area of the facility to 136,000 ft².  Precision Resource Canada specializes in the high volume production of automotive and general industrial components.

“We’ve been fortunate to be able to grow our business significantly in the past several years, even in a difficult environment for manufacturing in North America,” said Ron Hunt, General Manager of Precision Resource Canada.  “This addition will provide the room that we will need for the new business that we have booked and will allow us to significantly improve our overall material flow in the plant.”

Fineblanking is a high precision metal forming process used extensively in the automotive, heavy duty, electronics, medical, lawn and garden, and general industrial industries.  This unique process creates parts with very tight dimensional tolerances, excellent flatness, and with very little variation form part-to-part throughout long production runs.  These characteristics lead designers to specify fineblanked components for their most critical applications.

Founded as Fairfield Tool Company in 1947, privately held Precision Resource has grown to be the leading supplier of fineblanked components in North America and services leading manufacturers throughout the world.  Precision Resource also has a tremendous range of secondary finishing capabilities that enable it to provide completed components to their customers.  These capabilities include CNC machining, double disc grinding, fine grinding, lapping, broaching, and assembly.

Precision Resource has six production facilities in the United States and Canada.  In addition to the facility in Cambridge, Ontario, the company operates plants in Huntington Beach, CA; Ft. Lauderdale, FL; Vernon Hills, IL; Mt. Sterling, KY; and has a production facility and corporate headquarters in Shelton, CT.  For more information regarding the company, visit www.precisionresource.com.
