As we continue on from our 60th anniversary celebration year, 2016 is already looking to be a year full of exciting changes and investments. The goals for the upcoming year continue to improve upon our strong capabilities and services. Additionally, we continue to strive to deliver an even higher level of quality to our global customer base.
Because of the high demand for our components, we will be adding new equipment and technologies as we expand our progressive stamping and spring coiling equipment to accommodate our growth. Plans are in the works for an additional 600 ton press and four new CNC Coiling machines. This expansion could not come at a better time as we continue to see a rise in opportunities for quality stampings and springs made right here in the USA.
The addition of new equipment also means the addition of new staff. The recent expansion of U.S. manufacturing offers more opportunities for skilled labor, but, at times, the supply can’t meet the demand. Our apprenticeship programs continue as we train new employees on the art of metal forming. We are thrilled to teach these skilled trades to the next generation, and equally excited to have our first female apprentice in our tool room this year. From tool makers to setup technicians, we have apprentices in every area of our business to insure our continued growth.
Our involvement in the automotive, consumer electronic, and medical device industries has grown significantly over the years and we are taking on new projects in a variety of markets. Listening and partnering with customers helps us to understand specific needs and respond by adding new systems and equipment. Perfection’s willingness to adapt and reinvent processes is what sets us apart our competition. We continue to serve global OEM’s, as diverse as the components we make, with over thirty percent of our springs, stampings, wireforms and assemblies being exported worldwide.
Investing in people and equipment will help us meet the challenges of the future. Responding to market demands and delivering innovative solutions have been a catalyst for change and growth. We look forward to our 61st year of business as we continue to loyally serve our customers; some for over fifty years. Let us how you how we can serve your needs!
