New CNC Equipment

How do we continue to provide superior quality, on-time, and competitively priced service to its customers? We invest in quality equipment, as well as attract and retain a very talented group of employees. Our shop recently underwent some rearrangement as we added two new machines, replaced an aging machine (2005), and added several high pressure coolant systems to existing machines. One of the new machines, the Mori-Seiki NHX5000, is a five rotating pallet pool system with 180 tools that will significantly increase the efficiency of large quantity, complex machining operations, while opening up other machines to reduce our lead times. With the arrival of our new machines, the average age of the equipment is 3.7 years. By replacing aging equipment and completing regular preventative maintenance on all machines, we significantly reduce the risk of machine break-downs and that allows for us to operate at full capacity.

When we invest in new equipment as we continually do, not only do we seek quality equipment, but we also look for machines that have been technologically improved. Improvements made in machines have allowed for us to produce items in a way that Joe Hurley, our President, never thought possible when he started in the industry in 1981. "We realize that if we want to make quality parts that will go into state of the art equipment, then we must have quality, state of the art equipment to make those parts that will keep quality and efficiency high, while keeping prices competitive for our customers," stated Joe.

The quality of our service is a reflection of our workforce which we are seeking driven, detail oriented individuals to fill several positions. We are currently looking to fill a full-time, first shift opening in our shipping and receiving department; this position will handle all incoming and outgoing shipments at the loading dock, as well as pack and organize outgoing shipments. We are also looking to expand production further by increasing our second shift, CNC Machine Operator workforce; second shift operators work 38 hours Monday through Thursday and are paid for 40 hours. Since we pride ourselves on quality, we are seeking a full-time, first shift Quality Inspector to inspect in-process work and maintain electronic documentation to meet the needs of our customers. Employees not only earn competitive wages, but full-time employees are also eligible for health insurance, paid vacations and holidays, as well as 401K and bonus programs.

We continue to work towards becoming an industry leader and thank our customers and suppliers for supporting us and helping us to grow into the company we are today. We look forward to continuing and even improving upon the quality, on-time, competitively priced service we provide as we feel there is always room for improvement.
