:: OUR PEOPLE ::

We believe that building relationships is the key to our on-going success. The relationship begins the moment you call, fax, or e-mail us a description of the part you need manufactured. Jim has been at Meier Screw Products for over 30 years and is just the third owner in the company's 70+ year history. Jim's background is in Engineering (GMI and U of M) and is readily available to discuss your questions regarding the feasibility of manufacturing your products. Jim Sr. enjoys spending time in Northern Michigan, boating, and riding ATV's. Assuming the customer orders the parts to be manufactured, details of the quoted process are forwarded to the shop via the General Manager (Jim Preston Jr.). Jim Jr. (or 'Junior' as he is called in the shop) has been with Meier since January of 2005. His educational background is in Computer Science (B.S from WMU) and he previously worked in Customer Service and as a programmer prior to coming to Meier. Jim is the engine that drives the parts from start to finish. His energy and leadership keep the parts on schedule. In addition to scheduling and customer service, Jim manages our computer systems and is also our ISO Management Representative. When Jim is away from work, he enjoys sailing.

Once your job is in the shop, you may need to interface with other key members of the Meier staff. Ron Jankowski is our Quality Control Inspector; he has been with us over 18 years and can set up and operate nearly every machine in the shop. Ron 'works for the customer' and is committed to meeting your requirements.

Supplier relationships are vital to our on-going success and being in the Detroit area gives us the advantage of having our trusted vendors all within close proximity. Our vendors know that we work with a very fast delivery requirement and these material suppliers, heat treaters, grinders, and platers have worked with us for over 20 years. They recognize our 'need for speed' and are willing to continually provide us with expedited service.
