Precision Resource Adds Facility in China
Precision Resource, Inc., a leading supplier of precision metal components manufactured with the fineblanking technology, today announced that it has established a new facility in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China. Located about 100 miles southwest of Shanghai, the city of Hangzhou is a renowned manufacturing base and hosts many institutions of higher education institutions.
The new 5,000 m2 (52,000 ft2) facility is located in the HEDA National Development Zone, which is focused on advanced technology manufacturing. The current press size range is 250 to 700 tons, and the facility has a fully equipped quality lab and tool room. Future expansion is also possible.
Precision Resource established this facility to serve the automotive, electronics, and consumer industries throughout Asia. “Many of our current North American customers have facilities in China and throughout Asia, and this is an ideal platform to serve them from. Our customers can work with Precision Resource in North America to develop the programs and we can then support them very efficiently with local production,” according to Johnny Ma, Division Manager of Precision Resource (Hangzhou) Engineered Components, Ltd.
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.
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.
In addition to this new facility Precision Resource has six production facilities in the United States and Canada. The company operates plants in Huntington Beach, CA; Shelton, CT; Mt. Sterling, KY; Vernon Hills, IL; Cambridge, Ontario, and Saltillo, Mexico as well as a Technical Center in Canada. For more information regarding the company, visit our company page.
