We’re delighted to announce Brian Rose has rejoined Precise Tooling Solutions as Program Manager – Tooling.

Brian has time-tested experience both as a tool builder and program manager of challenging projects.  He spent 25 years as a Precise craftsman before taking a role with one of our tooling customers (Tasus) in 2015.

  • Ensuring that your new tooling is delivered on time and at budget
  • Making sure your timeline expectations are met on engineering changes, productivity and repair projects

In addition, he will work closely with Troy Jackson & Erica Whitby in deepening our customer partnerships, and with Josh Jeffries & Scott Nickerson in delivering the highest quality on your projects.

Please join us in congratulating Brian in his new role. You can reach him at 812.348.4021 (direct) or 812.603.6612 (mobile) or brose@precisetooling.com (email).
