In-Place Machining Company (IPM) is pleased to announce the addition of Exact Metrology at the company’s newly expanded IPM Ohio industrial facility, located at 6665 Creek Road in Blue Ash, Ohio. Centralizing the Ohio divisions of IPM, OASIS Alignment Services, and Exact Metrology will allow for improved collaboration and a more integrated approach to industrial solutions in this key region.
Speaking from IPM corporate headquarters in Milwaukee, WI, IPM President & CEO Dean Flint said, “We see this move as a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.”
Flint went on to explain the synergy of having three prominent suppliers to industry in the Ohio area. “In IPM, we have a leading force in precision industrial machining services plus large-scale wire cutting and drilling. Coupled with the machine alignment expertise of OASIS Alignment Services and the dimensional metrology and onsite scanning capabilities of Exact Metrology, we can now provide faster assessments on potential projects, situation analyses, service execution, and 3D measurement data capture solutions.”
“This unified team will represent a formidable partner to our existing and potential customers in the region,” Flint continued, noting the collaboration of the three companies at one location will enhance customer service, while utilizing shared resources and staff capabilities.
The move is part of a long-term growth strategy at IPM to expand industrial service offerings from single integrated sources and enhance its regional strengths across the U.S. and Canada. To that end, IPM has created two divisions with multiple service locations across North America—the IPM Machining Services group consisting of IPM and newly acquired Western Machine Works, LLC, and the IPM Measurement & Alignment Services group of Exact Metrology, OASIS Alignment Services, and ECM: Global Measurement Solutions. As Flint notes, “Being a ‘local’ company has significant benefits beyond the operational strengths of the partners.”
