These four companies were General Automation, Inc. which was founded in 1935; Gillette Machine & Tool which was founded in 1947; Helio Precision Products which was founded in 1984 and Nationwide Precision Products which was founded in 1965. For the last several years, these companies have been part of the Precision Partners Holding Company (PPHC) family.
