Precision Forms, Inc. was established in 1955 and quickly gained a reputation for quality and speed, attracting the attention of the aerospace industry and the Department of Defense. We started manufacturing high precision intricate aerospace parts in the 1970s and continue to this day. Our expertise in the demanding field of aerospace got us noticed by the medical device industry in the 1980s. Today, Precision Forms is one of the only contract manufacturers servicing both industries.
We change our capabilities to meet our customer needs and continuously invest in several key areas: our work force, the latest CNC manufacturing platforms, information systems and the most up-to-date quality tools. We currently employ approximately 45 associates in an 13,500 sq. ft. facility on Decker Road in Butler, with plans to expand.
The Precision Forms team is tight, agile, and innovative with over 1,200 years of design, manufacturing, and quality experience.
Bill Sulski has been at the helm for approximately 25 years as the President and CEO. His father Bill, a master machinist was one of the first co-owners of the company. Bill recalls machining parts at age 12 and working high school and college summers at Precision Forms.
Bill was a mechanical engineering major in the Naval ROTC program at Villanova and was commissioned as an Ensign in the Navy after graduating in May of 1971. He was sent by the Navy to Petroleum School in Virginia and Damage Control School in Philadelphia, then sailed to Viet Nam in support of the Navy ships off the coast. He joined Precision Forms upon his return to the US in 1976.
Aerospace and medical device industry veteran Gary Thomas recently joined the company as Chief Operating Officer. A graduate of Ramapo College and NJIT, Gary is also a journeyman toolmaker. He completed a four-year apprenticeship in the aerospace industry at age 22, at which he earned top secret clearance to work on government defense contracts. Gary Thomas has facilitated approximately $2 Billion in product launches in all sectors of the medical device space: hips, knees, maxillofacial, trauma, spine, and biologics. Additionally, Gary is also recognized as a subject matter expert in organizational effectiveness and operational performance.
Precision Forms started in a basement in Wayne, NJ 65 years ago, moved to Riverdale, and finally in 1994 to the current location in Butler. A great majority of the workforce live in the local area and many of our employees actively volunteer in the community in roles such as fire safety, mentoring, and working with the developmentally disabled.
Additionally, we recognize the importance of providing local employment and experience opportunities for those individuals reentering the job market, recent college graduates, and most importantly, individuals moving through vocational schools. We understand the importance of connection and strive to make a positive difference.
