Precision Resource Expands Kentucky Facility
Precision Resource, Inc., a world leader in the supply of precision metal components manufactured with the fineblanking technology, today announced that it has completed an addition to its Mt. Sterling, Kentucky facility.
The expansion of the Kentucky facility added 30,000 ft² of production space and increased the total area of the facility to 82,000 ft². This division specializes in the high volume production of automotive, heavy duty, and off-highway components.
“This expansion will give us the space that we need for the new projects we have been awarded,” said Horst Griesbaum, Division Manager of Precision Resource’s Kentucky Division, “and allows us to better organize the facility to improve production efficiencies. We look forward to bettering the experience for our customers and employees alike.”
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.
Precision Resource has eight facilities worldwide. The company operates plants in Huntington Beach, CA; Shelton, CT; Mt. Sterling, KY; Vernon Hills, IL; Cambridge, Ontario, Saltillo, Mexico, and Hangzhou, China as well as a Technical Center in Canada.
