History


1968 The company, named Precision Weight Scale, was founded by Ray Kendra providing repair and calibration of mechanical scales.

1979 Sons, Steve and Dan Kendra, joined the company and expanded the offering to include the sales and service of digital electronic scales.

1981 The company operations were relocated from Ray’s residence to the family’s farm just up the road. An old, 3,600 square foot, two story building, formerly used to store the Kendra Family farming equipment with a chicken coop on the second floor, was renovated to accommodate the shop and office needs of the growing business.

1983 Sons, Steve and Dan, purchased and incorporated the business. The business soon expanded into Custom Engineered Solutions.

1984 Steve and Dan purchased the old firehouse in Souderton, PA to use as a warehouse for the rather large inventory of old mechanical scales and rental scales the business was accumulating.

1989 The company took on nationwide support of Fargo AP-900 automated weigh-labeling systems.

1992 The company purchased the manufacturing rights of a line of industrial process control and thermal label printing equipment and began manufacturing barcode label printers and processors for the meat and poultry industry.

1993 The WD-1000, a first in a series of washdown printer enclosures was developed by the Systems Group of the company.

1996 The Paragon, a first in a series of rugged environment, washdown, touchscreen computers was developed and introduced in the market by the Systems Group.

1999 The company relocated to their newly renovated 14,500 square foot facility in Quakertown, PA, enabling the company to bring all operations and inventory back under one roof. The company name was changed to Precision Solutions, Inc. to more accurately represent the core offering and culture of the business.

2001 The company achieved accreditation as an ISO/IEC 17025 calibration lab.

2004 Steve Kendra sold his interest in the business to his brother Dan to dedicate his full time efforts to help find a cure for Neurofibromatosis (NF) by joining the NF foundation’s efforts as the Director of the NF Endurance Team.

2009 The company sponsored an NF Endurance bicycle team in the Race Across America. Brothers Steve and Dan were both riders on the team. The team raised over $100,000 for NF research.

2011 A Volunteer Service recognition program was formally launched at the company. The program encourages the company’s 21 employees to get involved in helping the community, the environment and humanity.
