A proud member of EMC and the Nova Scotia Cross Consortium
As Advanced Precision prepares for its 25th year in operation, the company looks back on its many achievements while also looking toward the future of precision machining.
Located in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Advanced Precision was founded in 1989 as a small CNC machine shop serving the local technology sector. Today, under the guidance of John and Christopher Fitzpatrick, the company has grown into a fully integrated, ISO 9001 Certified, manufacturing facility. serving various industries across North America including aerospace, military, oceanography, medical, oil and gas as well as environmental sustainability projects.
"Our client base includes some of the most recognized names in their respective industries" said Christopher Fitzpatrick, AP's president.
"We have earned their confidence by consistently exceeding expectations in terms of quality, delivery, and responsiveness. Our commitment to this standard is evident in our continual investment in people, process improvement, and in the world's latest in manufacturing technologies". These advanced manufacturing technologies include such elements as 3, 4, 5 axis machining, CNC milling and turning as well as personalized services such as collaborative product development.
Advanced Precision's components are found at 10,000 foot depths in the ocean and at 30,000 feet in the air.

Looking ahead, AP will continue to pursue not only new technologies and training but also new opportunities both at home and abroad. As Christopher Fitzpatrick noted, "Any company can invest in tools and equipment. I believe the difference between being a good supplier and a great one is fostering a company -wide culture of responsiveness and professionalism in everything we do".
