Updated: DeLeers Millwork sells majority interest to Precision InnovationGERMANTOWN, WI

- Precision Innovations Inc. has acquired a controlling interest in 60-employee DeLeers Millwork, a Green Bay, WI commercial wood interiors firm.

Precision Innovations, based in Germantown, WI, specializes in non-ferrous fabrication of materials for high tech firms, including GE. It also owns Germantown-based laboratory casework and cabinetry manufacturer PerMar Ltd.

Precision CEO Gregory Marx said PerMar Ltd. and DeLeers will pool resources, and each will have broadened product lines. "It's really a great combination, because both companies were providing very different products," says Marx. He said Phil DeLeers would continue as president of DeLeers Millwork.

Marx believes the synergy between the firms will lead to growth. "We expect to hire 20 to 30 people at PerMar," he said.

PerMar Ltd. (operations shown here), with 28 employees, provides custom, non-metal laboratory interiors and work surfaces for industrial and commercial clients, working in Trespa, Corian, and other phenolic and plastic materials.  PerMar also fabricates shelving, countertops, pegboards, windowsills, wall cladding, lockers, casework and exterior architectural components that can be cut in the field. It operates Haas CNC and other equipment in a 45,000 square foot manufacturing center.

 DeLeers was among woodworking firms visited on WCMA's annual plant tour in 2009.
