About Us

PRE-TEC, a Division of Willamette Valley Company, is a powerful team of innovative, take-charge individuals who know how to change ideas into reality. We ensure we understand the customer's needs, and produce the solutions to address the needs.

  • Project Review: We review concepts with you using simulation tools that let you envision a solution in your facility before a purchase order is issued.
  • Personalized Service: Design engineers provide personalized service. They partner with your project manager to develop solutions specific to your thermal or material handling requirements.
  • Quoting: Quotes are provided to aid companies with their capital budgeting process.
  • Assembly: All our systems are fully assembled, tested, and validated in our Eugene, Oregon facility and are approved by the customer before they are delivered.
  • Machine Shop: Production and system assembly take place in our Eugene, Oregon facility. We have a full-service machine shop for made-to-order fixturing and end-of-arm tooling. Customers are encouraged to visit our shop at any time during the design and manufacturing process to view their project as it is being built.
  • Experienced staff: Experienced electrical engineers and technicians design programs that interface between the robotic arm's controller and programmable logic controllers.
  • Software: Our projects are designed using 3-D solid modeling software. This allows engineers and customers to visualize the entire system before a single component is built or assembled.
  • Training and support: In order to assure trouble-free operation, we provide training before installation, and follow-up as needed. Our qualified service personnel offer after-sale preventive maintenance support, as well as service and spare parts inventory management.
