Precorp is happy to announce that starting April 1, 2015, Josh Smith will be working in our Delmenhorst facility in support of EMEA’s efforts towards special round tools. Josh has transferred from our South Carolina facility where he worked in the engineering department generating quotes and drawings. Josh has excellent knowledge of solid carbide cutting tool design and manufacturing. We envision his role to be a main contact for EMEA with regard to inquiries. He will work closely with and support Lars Bitter at the Delmenhorst plant to better support EMEA.
The transfer of Josh is the first step in the plan to improve Precorp’s support of EMEA in 2015. The next steps will be receipt of additional manufacturing equipment. This will increase our manufacturing capacity as well as our ability to make rapid test tools in the EMEA market. We expect this equipment to be in place the third quarter of this year. Please welcome Josh to Germany and look to him as a resource going forward.
