Dave Campbell: We are an ISO certified production machine shop. Our capabilities focus on 2″ to 42″ diameter parts. We utilize a wide range of CNC equipment. We like to use top of the line and we try to stay with Okuma, its very robust equipment.
We built the business with two pillars: taking care of employees and taking care of customers surrounded with the whole element of quality. Because quality is a mindset and when you want employees you want them thinking quality. Everybody here cares about the customers and meeting customer needs so that means that as their needs come up we do everything and everybody in the shop does everything they can to meet those needs.
We’re always looking for those things we can do that make us better, faster, quicker. We have a very rigorous quality process ISO certified of course. But more important than just the process is the environment in which we have that process working. We have quality equipment, we have a clean and well organized environment, we have empowered employees, we have teamwork. All that allows us to deliver quality to the customer.
