Precision Drive Systems (PDS), a global solution provider of precision motor spindles, expert engineering and support and repair services headquartered in Bessemer City, NC, announced that it has signed a contract to be the strategic provider of spindle monitoring and repair services for Patrick Industries' portfolio of manufacturing companies. Patrick Industries is a manufacturer and distributor of component products and building materials for recreational vehicles, manufactured housing, marine and various other industrial markets.

"All of us at PDS are honored to enter into this strategic agreement with Patrick Industries," said Allen Turk, Chairman and CEO of PDS. "Patrick Industries and its brands provide some of the highest quality and most sought after recreational, residential and commercial products. Entrusting their manufacturing process and preventive maintenance monitoring services to us further acknowledges the exceptional quality and value that PDS products and services deliver to our customers and the industries we serve."

"We recognize the service and quality that PDS provides globally," said Doyle Stump, Executive Vice President, Patrick Industries. "By working with PDS, we know that our spindle repairs and monitoring services will meet or exceed Patrick Industries' standards to help us maintain uptime and maximize productivity in all the industries we support."

Through this strategic agreement, PDS will provide spindle repair for Patrick Industries' entire portfolio of manufacturing companies. PDS provides comprehensive repair and rebuild service solutions for any spindle type or brand from its U.S.-based, precision manufacturing and machining headquarters. The company's complete spindle repair services include root cause failure forensics, vibration analysis, bearing and shaft repair, spindle taper grinding, balancing and engineering and application design.

Under the agreement, uptime will be optimized with PDS technicians providing regular VibeAid spindle vibration analysis for all Patrick shop floors. Using real-time utilization data, Spindle Health Monitoring Systems will further protect Patrick Industries' spindles from failure and workpiece errors. This integrated system is installed directly within the spindle, providing real-time monitoring and diagnostics that reduce machine downtime by predicting malfunctions through vibration and temperature analysis.
