We take the time to delve into each customer’s unique needs. Our engineers then design a custom automated solution using 3-D solid modeling software that lets you visualize the entire system before a single component is built. All our systems are fully assembled, tested and validated in our Eugene, Oregon facility and are approved by the customer before they are delivered. 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. Our experienced team of project managers are dedicated to ensuring your project goes smoothly and is installed to your specifications. Our qualified service and support personnel offer training, programming, spare parts and maintenance.

Automation projects at Pre-Tec are typically broken out into the following progression sequence:

Initial Customer Contact

Needs assessment, conceptual design, proposal, financing, production timeline.

Project Kick Off

Project Team assigned, engineering review, final design review & approval.

PRE-TEC began as the Precision Technologies Division of the Willamette Valley Company (WVCO) in 1980, created to supply easy-to-use, accurate equipment for metering WVCO’s chemical products in customer applications. From those early metering days, PRE-TEC has diversified into robotics and has grown to be the largest custom robotics integrator on the West Coast, while expanding its automated solutions throughout the world.
