Precision Drive Systems celebrates its 25th anniversary

Precision Drive Systems (PDS), a leading global provider of precision motor spindle support and repair based near Charlotte, North Carolina, is celebrating its 25th year.

“Over the course of our 25-year history, our talented team of engineers and technicians has collectively saved our customers millions of dollars with spindle-root-cause failure reports, spindle repairs and rebuilds,” said Allen Turk, CEO of PDS. “Their unparalleled workmanship and quarter-century of experience in rebuilding and repairing spindles have meant significant savings to our customers versus the expense of factory repairs and unplanned downtime.”

The company was originally founded in 1996 in Bessemer City as the exclusive North American sales and service center of Giordano Colombo spindles. This location was chosen to be the PDS corporate headquarters because of its close proximity to leading manufacturing centers in the southeastern United States. Today the company is known worldwide for the integrity of its workmanship and delivery-promise reliability. PDS serves U.S. customers from its service center in Bessemer City and European customers from its repair facility in Lohne, Germany, and has highly qualified hands-on technical service partners dedicated to assisting and supporting customers around the globe.

Since 1996, PDS’ factory-trained engineers and technicians have successfully rebuilt more than 40,000 spindles to better-than-factory standards for manufacturers worldwide. In addition to its better-than-factory repairs and rebuilds, PDS stocks an extensive line of new and rebuilt spindles, gauges, aggregates and variable frequency drives manufactured by the world’s leading companies for quick delivery. PDS engineers also custom design integrated spindle system end effectors for the robotics automation industry — these flexible but robust systems give manufacturing robots the ability to perform complex multi-axis machining.

Along with its expert spindle repair services, PDS is renowned for its world-class diagnostic application and design engineering technical support while proudly claiming the lowest warranty claim rates in the industry. Through its customer-focused preventative and predictive maintenance programs, PDS protects customer spindles, increasing productivity, reducing downtime and lowering overall manufacturing costs.
