One of the highlights of 2016 for me was being part of a new nationally syndicated podcast, The Shrimp Tank.
My co-host Brad Berger and I had a blast with seven fascinating guests starting in September. We begin 2017 with a switch in times – now 3 pm PST every other Wednesday. The next episode with stream live on January 11th with our guest Ryan Fournier of Fournier Insurance Solutions in University Place, WA.
Since the calendar is flipping into a new year, I thought it might be a great time to review our fantastic guests from last year! You’ll find each episode of our first seven guests on a daily blog post – both the audio podcast (45 minutes) and the video wrap-up (5-6 minutes). I encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter (on our website above) and to our show on iTunes.
Episode 3: Jim Tschimperle / CEO Pacific Machine, Inc.: LINK
Pacific Machine Shop was established in 1912. Jim became the 4th owner in October of 1985 and it became Pacific Machine Inc. and just started 32nd year of ownership. At the time of purchase, the business was located in Tacoma on the Theo Foss Waterway in a 1,600sq ft. building with 3 employees.
In 1988, they relocated to a 5,000sq/ft. building a mile from Foss Waterway location. As the business grew, they continually expanded their manufacturing space to 10,000sq/ft. and in 2014 moved to their present 20,000sq/ft. facility. They have continually changed and evolved as their customer base and needs have changed thru the purchasing automated equipment and computer software to run the machines and operate the business.
The business is based on the following principals:
They are committed to continually strive for excellence in providing a quality product and service to their customers. To continually improve their skills as craftsmen to the highest possible levels.
Their integrity, excellent quality and exceptional service to customers will continue to the foundation of their future.
