WDW Machine Inc., a precision machining and fabrication company, recently moved to a new facility to expand its operations. The company shifted its headquarters from one location on Gigante Drive, just up the road, to a new 6,000-square-foot facility at 17R Gigante Drive, said WDW spokesman Adam Webster, the company’s quality control manager.
Unlike the old facility, the new building is climate controlled and will allow WDW to increase workflow and better serve its customers, Webster said. In the old building, WDW sometimes had to shut down early on hot summer days. High temperatures can affect the tight tolerances that the company uses in the machining process. “Something at 70 degrees measures differently than 90 degrees,” he said.
Founded in 2002, WDW’s customer base includes a mix of Fortune 1000 companies, local corporations and startups. WDW customers include companies in the semiconductor, defense, imaging, printing, photonics and automotive manufacturing industries, Webster said. Customers are spread out to California and as far south as Florida, he said. They include Bell & Howell and General Dynamics. Most of the competition the company faces is centered overseas, he said. WDW supplies precision parts for such applications as airport security, including equipment used in the process for screening containers and luggage for explosives. Webster said the company doesn’t build the actual X-Ray machines but the enclosures or framework.
He said keys to the company’s success include the ability to keep up with current technology. Some of the machines WDW uses can cost as much as $400,000, and the company is constantly updating its software. Other keys include working closely with customers and providing a fast turnaround, usually within a week. “The way we are set up we are able to pivot very quickly to meet our customers’ needs,” he said. With a staff of 13 employees, WDW is adept at completing tasks on time, he said. “We are small enough that we can respond quickly to our customers’ changes, but we are big enough that we can get the high end changes done,” he said.
