HISTORY

The Willamette Valley Company founded in 1952, is a leading-edge, privately-owned multinational corporation that manufactures and distributes a wide variety of custom products and services throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Asia, and South America.

PRE-TEC is a division born from the resourcefulness of the Willamette Valley Company, in the 1980’s, when Willamette needed easy-to-use, accurate equipment for metering chemical products and it could not find suppliers to fill the needs.

The individuals in the Equipment Division had the ingenuity to combine solid metering design and production practicality with long-term reliability. That was the beginning of our team. These talented professionals were not satisfied with solving just one problem. They went on successfully to engineer a wide variety of metering systems ranging from small-shot applicators to systems that handle 100,000+ cps spray coatings.

In the mid-1990's, the Equipment Division became Precision Technologies Division, and in 2009 we became PRE-TEC. The other significant change in 1990’s was PRE-TEC’s diversification into robotics. Over the last decade, this well-accomplished group has prepared over 200 robotic systems for industry. Now having been in business for more than 25 years ago, PRE-TEC has grown to be largest custom robotic integrator on the West Coast.
