Essex Precision Ltd was opened in 1981. An employee of one of the largest precision machining companies in Guelph was offered the task of being the prototyper and the supplier of certain machined parts. As a part of the re-structing of the company, certain aspects of the business was to be outsourced.

That one employee was given the option of being the outsourcer of these CNC machine parts, with the support of his employer. That was a deal that could not be turned down. He accepted and Essex Precision Ltd was opened in the exact location in which it now stands. The company has since expanded into several other units as production and sales exmapnded.

Since then, that company and hundreds of others of all sorts have been provided cnc machining services, welded frames and fabricated parts, prototyping and auto oem parts manufacturing.
