Pindel Global Precision Opens New Headquarters

Originally titled 'Company Opens New Headquarters'

Pindel Global Precision’s new facility will house the company’s headquarters.

Six years ago, when Bill Berrien acquired and took the helm as CEO of what was then A.S. Pindel Corp, he did so with a vision of building on the company’s foundation and history. His goal was to create an advanced manufacturing enterprise that would emerge as one of the manufacturing industry’s leading companies. With the recent acquisition of a 60,000-square-foot production and office facility, on 3.7 acres of land, that vision for Pindel Global Precision takes another move forward.

Located two blocks from Pindel’s two existing manufacturing plants, the facility opens opportunities for Pindel and its customers. “This facility enables us to expand our capabilities, grow our highly skilled manufacturing team, evolve our relationships with leading educational institutions, and cement a leadership position as the premier contract manufacturer of precision machined components for sophisticated, globally minded customers,” says Mr. Berrien.

Following a remodeling and construction project, the location will serve as the company’s global headquarters. It will be equipped with multi-axis CNC equipment, automated FANUC robotics work cells for high production machining, as well as machine monitoring solutions that provide data and insights to inform production and business decision-making.

“What is perhaps most exciting is our ability to create a Learning and Innovation Center to support the acceleration of Industry 4.0 and artificial intelligence applications,” says Mr. Berrien. “At the same time, we can provide training for employees across all facilities as well as local area students in New Berlin’s high schools, and through our long-standing partnership with GPS Education Partners. As the first corporate sponsor of an industry collaboration room inside MSOE’s Dwight and Dian Diercks Computational Science Hall, we’ll also be able to advance our collaboration with MSOE—from their classroom to our Learning and Innovation Center.”

According to Dave Werner, president and CEO of Park Bank, the company’s long-time financial partner, Mr. Berrien is no stranger to bold, strategic moves. “Bill began his career as a Navy SEAL Officer and later at GE Healthcare where he developed fundamental principles that have guided him throughout his business career. He knows the importance of vision followed by thoughtful, strategic action, and that teamwork and trust are critical to success. Together with Paul Jelacic, Park Bank’s VP of commercial banking, they charted a path forward from the first look at this facility to this transaction and the follow-on renovation.”

The facility is targeted to be operational in late fall 2018.
