Precision Machining Shop Largo FL USA

ITAR Registered & Certfied ISO 9001:2015


David Schwanke, President of PTI began his career at a large machine shop in 1980 as a saw operator in Ohio. He quickly worked his way up the ranks of manufacturing into a purchasing position.

In 1986, after being recruited within the machining industry to Florida, he relocated his family to the Tampa area. There he met Jeff Messick, owner of Advanced Quality Machining. Over the next several years they struck up a friendship after which Jeff offered David ownership in his company. That was December of 1998 when the name changed to Precise Technologies, Inc. Precise began in a standalone 6,500 square foot building on Palm Way in Largo, with a few employees and couple pieces of CNC Equipment.

The company grew quickly and ran out of space. In 2006, Precise moved to a 20,000 square foot facility on 75th St in Largo. Precise continues to grow thanks to their impressive customer list & dedicated group of employees which now includes some family members such as David’s wife, Tara, and also his daughter, Kristin which joined our team in early 2019. The future looks very bright.
