We have found our third machine shop to feature in our Machine Shop Of The Week series, and we are thrilled to introduce Precision Manufacturing Solutions of Biddeford, Maine.
How did you get started? And how has the journey been so far?
In 2003 Precision Manufacturing Solutions was formed and continues to be operated by key employees of the former Atlantic Precision Products. Our focus from the beginning has been High Complexity work in the Aerospace and Defense sectors that other shops shy away from while utilizing the highest levels of technology available. We started with a dozen employees and have grown to 75 currently. We employ machinists who enjoy being challenged and are passionate about the trade. Employees looking for an easy ride don’t do well here.
What are some struggles you have had along the way of growing your shop/business?
Probably the biggest challenge has been finding employees that are interested in a challenge, and are willing to put the time in to learn the necessary skills.
What should we know that makes your shop/business unique?
We are unique in our ability to create processes to control difficult to machine features, in difficult to machine alloys, at difficult to hold tolerances.
