It is hard to believe that the first half of 2018 is already in the books and the summer season is fully upon us. That said, there is no shortage of excitement at The EF Precision Group. 
 
New Equipment Added in June 2018
The EF Precision Group has added another new CNC machining center! Please welcome the MyCenter H400iG – 20,000 RPM. As manufacturing continues to strengthen in the US, we continue to plan for the future.
 
Quality News, Quality Matters
In March of 2018 we achieved our AS9100D certification and the company’s ISO13485 recertification following shortly thereafter. Extreme commitment to these important certifications demonstrates our focus on quality and continuous improvement: the audits were completed with zero findings and numerous kudos from the Registrar.

Our new and expanded website was launched in May 2018 and has been met with great enthusiasm. If you have not visited the site, please access it here and schedule a facility visit, download our facilities list and get to know our consultative manufacturing organization better.
