brief history
Precise Tool and Manufacturing Inc. was founded in 1974, and started off as a quick turn around small parts manufacturer. Over the next few years the business grew and expanded. It diversified its capabilities and earned its reputation by building special machinery and prototype equipment for several local industries. Throughout this time the company built up its CNC machine tool base to support the efforts of its design and build department. Seeing the potential growth in CNC parts manufacturing Precise focused its efforts in this area and moved to its current location at 9 Coldwater Crescent, starting with 7,500 square feet of space. At this location Precise put on multiple building expansions and new equipment purchases to support its core competency of precision CNC machining.
In 2012, Precise recognized the need for skilled machinists, and decided to begin training highly motivated students within their own facilities. A small workshop and classroom was created under the very same roof. The Precise CNC Machining Institute was born. Mark Sickles, 25+ year Machinist\Engineer was asked to lead and develop new candidates, and was named PCMI Instructor. PCMI provides excepted candidates the ability to learn machining, starting from the very basics, and get paid doing it. This coming from a company who's been successful at it for almost 40 years. Our goal at PCMI is to train students for a lifelong career in the CNC Machining trade.
our objectives
