Precise has experienced controlled growth in the last six years. We have moved into our newest facility of 25,000 sq-ft situated on three acres of land to house inventory, equipment, engineering facilities, manufacturing facilities, office and operations under one state of the art facility.  Please give is a call and come for a tour of our Shop, we love to host facility tours to demonstrate our full capabilities.

The main focus of Precise is creating efficiency that benefits our customers. Over the years we continually monitor our cost of doing business and keep vigilant in reducing those costs so that we can bring that savings to our customers. This new facility will help Precise increase efficiencies and create specialty areas for manufacturing thermocouples, fiber components and maintenance, pressure and temperature equipment and re-calibration services, and complete in-house maintenance of all service vehicles, installation and spooling equipment that we utilize.
