We Make Outsourcing the Comfortable Choice

For most, the idea of outsourcing to a machine shop is rarely the comfortable choice. Valid concerns about money, quality, delivery, and shipping tend to impede manufacturers from getting what they need. At P.D. Peterka, we want to change that. Any shop can machine a product and follow a spec, but how many make communication and customer service a priority? How many attempt to provide you peace of mind and control over the process? Our strategy hinges on an ERP system that plugs a customer’s project into a database for flawless execution – from inquiry to manufacturing, to inventory, shipping and billing. For our team, we understand the importance to not just getting the job done, but getting it done well, with satisfied customers and comfortable choices.

Contract Manufacturing

P.D. Peterka provides the comfort of one-source, where we can answer all your questions and keep the process organized to help you maintain control over your project. We produce our products in our machine shop Milwaukee, and work with quality service providers should a unique project call for it. JIT, small runs, and prototyping are our specialties. All that’s required to make your outsourcing experience comfortable is to contact one of our team members with your engineering specs and requirements.
