Jan. 26, 2017It's the Little Things

Grand gestures of appreciation are not things companies are able to do every day for their employees.  But we all know that sometimes it’s the little things that can make a big difference.  Something as simple as putting water stations in the break room, or maybe changing up the radio station that plays overhead every once in a while to prevent boredom, or buying new and faster microwaves so folks don’t have to use up their entire lunch break waiting to heat up their food.  These are all things HPM has implemented recently as a result of reading suggestions from our ‘Comment Box.’ 

Jan. 19, 2017Hardware? We've Got You Covered.

At HPM, we are always making strides to increase productivity.  Our most recent effort was focused in our Hardware Installation department.  Three new Haeger Insertion Machines were added to our already expansive Haeger inventory.  We now have a total of 12 Haegers with four of them being mobile.

The 618 MSPe models have the multi-insertion Turret Insertion Systems (TIS).  This allows us the ability to create a "work cell" on one machine instead of needing two or more machines for one part.  According to our hardware supervisor, these new machines are very user friendly.

Jeff Morin jumped into the role of VP of Operations and hit the ground running.  If you haven't had a chance to meet Jeff, just give him a call.

Nov. 21, 2016Happy Thanksgiving!

'Tis the season of holidays and short work weeks.  Yes, Herold Precision Metals will be closed this week on Thursday and Friday so our families can spend time together for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Whether you are helping out at a homeless shelter, watching football, or getting a head start on Christmas shopping, please remember all the things that you are thankful for this year.

Nov. 2, 2016Now that's FAST!

The owners of HPM are always looking ahead at new technology and ways to help HPM stay competitive.  Putting money back into the business is something they strive to do to help make that happen.

Not too long ago, a new Mitsubishi fiber laser was installed, replacing one of the older lasers.  After running a few trials on the new fiber laser, we found that we are now able to produce parts that are cleaner and that run significantly faster than in our other lasers.  This helps cut down on lead time for you, the customer.
