WATERLOO —
At 2007, David Jones realized that the business he invested heavily in was unsustainable.
Jones and a former partner bought J.
Gerth custom tools
In 2000, about $1 million was invested to enhance the metal stamping capacity of Waterloo by purchasing equipment such as brake presses and expanding into the manufacturing field.
A few years later, a tornado hit manufacturing.
From 2005 to 2007, many of the manufacturers that Gerth worked for either outsourced production or went into bankruptcy management.
\"Good, meaty stamping work is getting less and less,\" Jones recalls . \".
\"But the way you look at it is,\" Well, I\'m here.
What should I do now?
What he did changed everything, and even changed the name of the business founded in 1977 by John G.
With the help of brand remodeling experts, Beiguo Road\'s business has become perfect, adhering to the concept of \"perfection\", \"design is being formed\" to reflect the process of starting from the computer --
Auxiliary design of metal products.
Jones said the staff were invited to a March er Rangers hockey game and the new name was declared \"a lot of applause\" before the puck fell \".
But these changes have been going on for several years.
Ken Bott, a new partner who entered the industry in 2008, has a rich background in laser cutting, manufacturing and factory management.
They invested in laser.
Cutting machines so that businesses can react to the same thing
Manufacturing demand.
Jones explained that using metal stamping, it takes weeks of preparation to make tools suitable for the manufacturer
Mass production with little design change.
But as manufacturing shifts, the company needs to be able to do the work that cannot be done offshore --
Parts that require a lot of design changes, quick needs, or orders in a lower volume.
In this case, it is cheaper to use laser cutting parts instead of manufacturing tools, Jones said.
It\'s a terrible shift, says Jones, because laser cutting equipment is very expensive.
\"Too much money is involved.
It takes about $500,000 to buy a laser, and we just spent about $1 million on stamping equipment that we don\'t have business with right now.
Therefore, Jones, who holds a master\'s degree in business administration from Wilfried Laurier University, was careful.
\"We hired a sales person who was out on the road to bring in the laser business.
So at first we outsourced our work.
\"When the company reaches the critical mass of the laser business, it buys a laser cutting machine.
With the development of business, it bought a second one.
The company is booming now.
The company has 28 employees in its 10,000 square feet plant, engaged in laser cutting and stamping, forming and manufacturing, welding and product assembly. Perfexia Inc.
Make metal parts for customers in various industries, from workbench systems and office furniture, to metal frames in agriculture and arena structures, and solar roofs.
Transition requires different skills, Jones said.
\"But we have good people, so we keep them and train them.
These changes have undoubtedly saved the company, Jones said.
\"If we didn\'t go down this road, we would have closed down three years ago,\" he said . \".
Now Perfexia is preparing to grow again.
The company plans to add about 5,000 square feet to its existing buildings.
The additional footprint will allow businesses to keep more stock of materials so it can respond faster to customer needs, Jones said.
\"I like emergencies,\" Jones said . \"
\"If a client has a disaster that we can solve, I like that we can respond to it.
It will also allow Perfexia to add more equipment and personnel.
But Jones said he would keep the business under control.
\"I need to know everyone\'s name,\" he said . \".
