Berkness Swiss makes small parts that are used in the automotive, aerospace, oil & gas, and medical industries, as well as a few other industries. They aren’t just a simple machine shop. They are, in fact, a highly specialized machine shop that creates parts using a Swiss Style lathe. Berkness Swiss is staffed by top machinists who are carving out a new way of delivering high quality parts on time.
The fact that Berkness Swiss uses Swiss Style lathes might not mean much to you until you appreciate what these tools can do and how much skill and training go into running the machinery successfully. On more conventional tools in a machine shop, getting a job done may require several passes and even multiple machines. The Swiss Style lathes that Berkness Swiss uses are capable of handling complex tasks with a single pass. That’s because they can have up to 7 different axis to operate on. Setting up operations and skillfully executing them happens because training is important at Berkness.
Berkness Swiss understands that the manufacturers they supply parts to need to operate on several axis within their own business in order to stay viable. If they don’t get a parts order in on time, an entire production line can be shut down. That is no way to run a business. Business partners promise a delivery date and ensure that the promise is kept.
That’s how trust is earned.
Berkness Swiss runs its business the same way they make parts: They look at the big picture and design a process that will get the job done in the most efficient way possible. When customers need their parts, they know that Berkness Swiss will deliver on time and at the right level of quality. It’s a winning combination made possible when skill meets technology and promises meet a commitment to honor them.
We take our leadership role in parts manufacture seriously at Berkness Swiss. It is the reason that our customers trust the relationship we have built with them. It’s been strengthened by our resolve and commitment to continued growth.
Leadership in business sectors like manufacturing happens when a company looks at how things are done, and makes the decision to do them better. In the past, it was rare to find a machine shop that used such high end tools to fashion the parts they sold. Berkness understood that having machines with greater levels of flexibility meant that they could fill just about any order in record time without sacrificing quality.
It takes time to train a good machinist and even longer to train a great one on a more complex machine. Finding a company that is able to move past the basics to create more durable parts with strict tolerances is the difference between meeting customer expectations and falling into the back of the pack. Companies that lead the industry aren’t afraid of trying new things and breaking the old molds.
