We're thrilled to announce the acquisition of the ErgoStation® product line of adjustable height machine bases and workstations from Extol, Inc. h


ErgoStation machine bases and workstations have been widely used in U.S. manufacturing environments for over 20 years. The highly engineered products feature a 12” vertical range to provide optimal ergonomic safety. Additionally, both use a welded-steel construction frame. This design feature—unique to ErgoStation—incorporates an integrated bearing system to eliminate both table flexing and side-to-side frame movement.


We believe ErgoStation products are well positioned for the resurgence in U.S. manufacturing. ErgoStations are height-adjustable, exceptionally rugged, and highly configurable. They are also affordable, making this a winning combination with industrial manufacturers and machine configurators across multiple industries.

We’re thrilled to announce Precise Mold & Plate has installed a state-of-the-art five-axis machining center. The newest addition to our fleet of 13 CNC machines is one of the largest boring mills in the region and significantly enhances our machining capabilities.

  • Complex shapes can be machined in a single setup, saving time and reducing your cost
  • Shorter cutting tools are used, enabling higher cutting speed and reduced tool vibration to deliver finished parts faster
  • Drilling a series of holes with different compound angles can be completed much more quickly, reducing your cost
  • Highly complex parts can be machined from a solid block, reducing lead time for parts that would otherwise need to be cast

We were delighted to see so many customers participating in our Spring Customer Satisfaction Survey. This was our 4th semi-annual survey, and we received input from a broad cross-section of customers. Survey participants included several new relationships as well as some 20+ year relationships. 

Survey Headlines

  • Two-Thirds Say Precise's Quality is ‘Much Better’ or ‘Somewhat Better’ Than Competitors
  • Quality, Price & Experience Were the Most Important Attributes Considered When Selecting Precise
  • 100% of Customers Will Recommend Precise
  • 100% Are Satisfied With Customer Service
  • 100% Say Precise Is Easy To Work With

Transparency is central to our culture, and we believe it is important to share survey results -- as well as customer suggestions -- with all of our business partners. Just click below to watch a short 45-second slide show.

Employees Measure Off Charts in Publication Survey 

Precise Mold and Plate isn’t a factory, even though it looks like one.  Located in an industrial park just west of Indianapolis Road behind Blairex Laboratories, the sounds of machines are evident and work fills the floor.  But Precise Mold & Plate has no production line. Employees do not assemble the same, identical parts day in and day out.
The company’s 55 employees are craftsmen, owner Don Dumoulin said.  “Really, our guys are artists,” he said. And constant creativity makes for happy workers, Dumoulin said.

National trade publication Plastic News agrees, naming Precise Mold & Plate the best place to work in the plastics industry.  The selection is partially based on a thorough review of workplace policies and demographics. However, employee responses on a blind survey were the biggest factor in making the selection.

Named #2 Best Place to Work by Plastics News

[fa icon="calendar'] 3/1/16 12:05 PM / by John Rowe

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

News Flash.....Precise Mold & Plate was just named the #2 Best Place to Work by the international trade publication Plastics News!

The Best Places to Work program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the plastics industry. We are extremely honored to receive this award. Our talented craftsmen continue to show tremendous commitment to customer satisfaction. I am very proud of our team.

Injection molders and mold makers across North America entered the two-part survey process to determine Plastics News’ Best Places to Work. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of a confidential employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group administered the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings of the 15 finalists.

Several themes from the random employee surveys factored into Precise earning the #2 spot, including:

  • History of high customer satisfaction scores
  • Ongoing investment in new machining technology and innovation
  • Vibrant yet managed growth

Plastics News honored all 15 winners and revealed final rankings at the 20th annual Executive Forum last week in Naples, FL. Final rankings and profiles of the 15 winners will be published in the March 21 edition of Plastics News.
