A photo collage of what you may have missed at Accurate in the second quarter 2023

You miss a little – you miss a lot!

Much like we continue to punch holes into metal at Accurate Perforating or hang various parts on the paint line at Accurate Metal Fab, we do many different things between the Accurate Family of Companies. And sometimes, you might miss one of those events! Instead, let's look at all the fun we had in the second quarter of 2023!

April 11 – 12

We had a big day at both Accurate Metal Fab and Accurate Perforating. The crew from Indoor Drone Tours was out to begin filming our location. Over two days and almost 16 hours of filming, we captured our whole operation – and now, we are working on condensing it to 2 and a half minutes!

Accurate Perforating went west from Chicago to the AIA Conference in San Franciso, CA, on June 8th and 9th.

Project Managers at Accurate Meta Fabricating, Cicero, IL

On June 9, we had a mini photoshoot with our project managers, who were featured in one of our blogs in June. Each of them certainly enjoyed letting the world know who they were and how they can project manage your next job!

June 14 – 15

Accurate Metal Fab went on the road to the Detroit area – Novi, MI, to be exact. This was the first time the D2P tradeshow was in the market, and we found it to be a valuable show and market for us to be at.

Over at Accurate Perforating, the newest member of our family, the Cincinnati Shear, got a fresh coat of paint and is actively processing perforated metal for all of our customers!
