Welcome to Precision Inc

THE BEGINNING


Precision was founded in 1977 by a group of six men who believed that a manufacturing company should support and provide job opportunities for small communities in Iowa and supply quality products to the industrial conveyor pulley market.

The beginning was challenging. It was not until after the first year of business that these entrepreneurs started to get paid. In two years, the company was profitable, moved to Pella, IA, expanded the production facility to increase manufacturing capacity and began offering new products.

During the next 20 years, the shareholders, consolidated to two individuals, doubled business capacity by opening manufacturing operations in Lenox and Corning, Iowa and Service Centers with stocked product in strategic areas of the country. The accelerated growth in Precision to become the #1 pulley and idler supplier in North America took off under the PPI brand.

In 2014, Precision implemented an acquisition strategy to diversify the business, targeting the manufacture of sanitary equipment and components for the food processing industry. In 2017, the acquisition of a second food equipment operation marked the beginning of the newest division of the company: PFI.

Today, Precision has over 1.000 employees, 27 facilities in 15 different locations that include manufacturing plants, warehouses, service centers, offices, technology and training center in the US and manufacturing facilities and service centers internationally.
