Wilke Enginuity, Inc.
250 O'Brien Lane
Hanover, PA, 17331

Press release date: August 24, 2012

With summer well under way across the States, and with millions of Americans taking well-deserved summer vacations, it's only natural that many want to take advantage of their free time to pursue favorite hobbies, crafts, and passions. One of the foremost of these hobbies happens to be bird watching. It's estimated by the US Fish and Wildlife Service that some 51.3 million Americans spend upwards of $2.5 billion each year on observing birds of all varieties and species, both native and foreign. While a significant amount of that money is spent on ecological trips to various "bird-watching hotspots" throughout North America and abroad, a far larger sum is invested right at home - in the form of backyard birdhouses.

At Wilke, we make precision birdhouse components for a prominent company in the home and garden industry. Our client was receiving parts from another company, but wasn't satisfied with the precision of the components delivered. The tolerance tightnesses were inconsistent to the point where they began searching for another manufacturer that would be able to deliver the goods as needed. They settled on Wilke Laser, and they had good reason to.

Our laser-cutting process is normally geared towards metals and alloys that require fine-tuned precision cutting and cornering. The metal components we build at Wilke go into anything from tractors, to trains, to architecture - all of which are fields where imprecise measurement is just not an option. Our customers can't afford to make those kind of mistakes in their respective industries, and neither can we. The same principle can apply to woodworking just as in metallurgy. With Wilke at the helm, we've been able to consistently manufacture birdhouse components with tolerances down to a few thousandths of an inch of specifications. Our client, almost needless to say, is pleased with both our quality and consistency.
