Merritt Precision has added another 5-axis mill at its Merritt Island, Fla., location, its third such machine that will increase milling capacity by 40 percent.

The company, which is part of the Correct Craft group, will be able to partner with new customers and help current customers get products to market faster.

“Our team believes in creativity over capital so we can stay focused on what matters most to our customers,” said Merritt Precision vice president and general manager Doug Keehn in a statement. “This includes using the best robots and materials to mill plugs that support the most sophisticated designs and meet the demands of multiple pulls in tooling. We have an incredible team, and it was remarkable seeing their efforts integrating our third mill in our existing space without losing a day of production.”

Merritt Precision has been following a plan to expand business; last week the company announced a new website to share the story of how it has grown.

“You have to be both right and fast to win in today’s market,” said Sean Marrero, president of parent company Watershed Innovation. (Merritt Precision operates as an autonomous, standalone business under Watershed.)

“This new capacity combined with Merritt’s experience and reputation of building strong relationships will unlock new possibilities for our customers going forward,” said Marrero.
