After a year of uncertainty and challenges nobody saw coming, it was invigorating to go through 2021 and see how much change and growth happened at Hirsh Precision.
2021 challenged us with new customers, projects, and industries, but our team charged forward when it was time to grow, change, and adapt.
Over the course of this year, and in line with our commitment to Continuous Improvement, our team set many changes in motion to address our customers’ primary concerns: lead times, capacity, and customer experience.
One significant improvement we made was around our compliance. We embraced new regulatory practices to align ourselves with quality standards like AS9100 and ITAR. This will allow us to better service our aerospace customers, which we’re very excited to see more of in 2022.
We also brought metal finishing in-house by partnering with our long-time industry friends Best Finishes from Colorado Springs. By offering several types of anodize and metal finishing services, we can offer shorter lead times and ensure the highest level of quality for our customers.
To support our customers’ growing needs, we also added 23 new team members, 2 new CNC machines, and expanded our automated machining capabilities! Simply put, this means more dedicated expertise and increased capacity for our customers as we head into 2022.
In addition to growing our production, engineering, customer service, assembly, and inventory teams, we also placed a new focus on sales and marketing as we seek to share the Hirsh story and connect more with our customers and community.
As we start to wrap up 2021, our Boulder and Louisville facilities are busier than ever.
We can’t wait for the growth that awaits us in the new year and are so excited to support our customers’ innovative ideas and business goals. Our team has big plans – many of which we are already being executing – for the new year that will continue meeting our customers’ top concerns: lead times, capacity, communication, and collaboration.
Your dedicated Hirsh team is here and better than ever as we look forward to 2022!
