Say hello to Big Sky Precision

Posted in Company Highlights on March 25, 2009 by Peter

Although we specialize in door-to-door service, MPTS also accepts work that comes to us from outside the Portland/Vancouver area via the Post Office or other long-distance carriers (UPS, FedEx, etc).  Big Sky Precision definitely falls in that category:  They’re located in Manhattan, Montana (occasionally known to its inhabitants as the Little Apple).

Big Sky Precision specializes in two widely divergent fields:  Quick-release fasteners, and custom wristwatches.  Check out for the former, and these two sites for the latter: and  MPTS is proud to be involved with this innovative company.

We’ll be back next week with more news.


Our thanks to Allied Systems

In the last few weeks we completed calibration and repairs for Allied Systems in Sherwood, Oregon.  Allied Systems makes cranes of various types for military and construction applications.  They’ve been in business for many decades, and we’ve been doing their tools for over ten years.   You can find out more here:  Thank you, Allied, for being a great customer.MPTS at AlliedAllied Crane

After 35 years in business, Mobile Precision Tool Service has its own web site.  As you can see, we’re very excited.  We’ll be using this part of the web site to post any momentous events (new customers, schedule openings, &c).  As of this moment, the event is getting our web site up and running.  Thanks go to Justin Hoke and his lovely and gracious wife Yatang for designing the site and getting it up and running.   Most people probably don’t want masters, but we of MPTS are happy to have Justin as our web master.

Check back soon for more exciting updates or momentous events.
