Gilman Precision Acquires Roller Precision Spindle Repair



Gilman Precision has announced the acquisition of Roller Precision Spindle Repair, owned by John Roller, who will join Gilman's team as the Spindle Repair Supervisor.

This acquisition will double the size of Gilman's spindle repair services and provide expert knowledge, innovative methods and additional resources for repairing spindles quickly and more efficiently, reported the company.

John Roller, previous Chief Executive Officer of Roller Precision, said, "This venture allows us to combine our knowledge and resources with Gilman to create an industry-leading spindle repair service, housing all personal and equipment under one roof."

Previously, Roller Precision Spindle Repair served southeastern Wisconsin and the Midwest regions for over 20 years as Oetlinger. In the past three years, John Roller purchased the company and set to work with 25 years of personal spindle and machining experience to assist him. Roller Precision has since then improved its evaluation and estimation processes to provide quick turn-around and feedback for its valued customers. Common repairs include, but are not limited to, brands such as Mori Seiki, DMG Mori, Mazak and Kitamura.

In the role of Spindle Repair Supervisor, Roller will be responsible for overseeing spindle technicians, estimating repairs and refining the repair, rebuild and refurbishment processes. He will also support Gilman's business development team through generating repair sales growth and becoming a point-of-contact for transferring contacts. Additionally, this hire provides an opportunity for Gilman to prepare for future growth in the spindle department, and enhance customer care through continuously improving end results.

Chris Hetzer, Chief Executive Officer said, "We are very excited to have Roller Precision join our team. Roller's expertise and attention to detail in spindle repair is a great fit for Gilman."
