Its president, Kristin Maier, took over the job of leading the shop when her father fell ill.

In addition to Kristin Maier, the management team includes her mom, Debbie Maier, CEO and CFO; Rick Collingwood, foreman; Bill Roy, production manager and CNC programmer; Joe Beavis, estimator and process engineer; and Jim Hebda, quality manager.

"My father was an entrepreneur and had started a vending company that he and my mother ran together, as well as another company that helped other entrepreneurs start their own companies," Kristin said.

"A lot of employees didn't want to do that because it was outside their comfort zone, but you can't get any- thing that's worth having without taking a risk," Kristin said.
...
Kristin worked at the shop on and off during high school doing odd jobs, and, after college, took a posi- tion in shipping and receiving. However, she wanted to see what she could do on her own.

Larry Maier passed away in October 2012, and Kristin succeeded him as president.

"We can lap hundreds of parts at one time to within 0.0000050" of each other," Kristin said.
...
"The division's vice president of operations was trying to sand 25 pins down to fit inside the bushing, and he was frustrated," Kristin said.
...
"We like to do things that set us apart from other companies, so we got both certifications in parallel," Kristin said.
...
"That allows us to say we can do everything from ordering raw material through final inspection, including screw machining, large-part manufacturing, welding, heat treating, plating and nondestructive testing," Kristin said.
...
"For example, we were looking for someone with experience in grinding, but we found that the people worth hiring were already taken and the people applying for the job either didn't have the skills we needed or hadn't worked in the industry for 20 years," Kristin said.
...
"We encourage innovation because our people are really smart," Kristin said. "Often, they can examine a part and come up with a new way of machining it-sometimes on another machine-that takes less time. We encourage that and they don't have to worry about failing; you can't learn anything without risking failure, and more often than not the new way succeeds and saves us and the customer money. And since we have profit sharing based on the profitability of individual jobs, some of that can come back to them."
While Peerless Precision has a strong base in New England's robust aerospace and defense industry, Kristin Maier would like to expand the shop's profile.
