APM's CNC Machine Shop Services Now Promoted Through, In Addition To Our Traditional Social Media Channels

[January 14, 2015] Corporate responsibility and sound business practices rely on a bit of self-promotion from time to time as part of an overall marketing and branding strategy. At Advanced Precision Machining, we make every effort to connect with current and potential customers through variety of digital media channels including our website, social media platforms, and increasingly popular digital supplier directories. 2014 was a good year! Inquiries and orders for our CNC machine shop services were up, capital expenditures resulted in new milling and machining equipment, and we added to our staff of CNC machinists. We are also working hard to promote our brand and further establish our team as industry leaders in the precision manufacturing sector, especially among Colorado machine shops. We have learned over time to take advantage of digital supplier directories and similar online resource guides to further these business interests. To kick off 2015, we are pleased to announce that we have joined, a leading online marketplace for CNC machining, plastic injection molding, metal fabrication, castings, metal stamping and many other precision manufacturing services. is a great resource for those of us involved in the high speed machining business, and describes itself as a leader in the online marketplace space for the entire manufacturing industry. Buyers of made to order goods, such as CNC machine parts in our case, are able to create a request for quote (RFQ) complete with applicable CAD files and technical specifications. These are then matched to a supplier such as Advanced Precision Machining. APM is also able to find open RFQs to fill any excess milling and machining capacity we may have. The collaboration, quoting, awarding of the order, and tracking through delivery of the end product all happen on the platform resulting in efficiency and value for all parties. We are now listed here in the associated digital supplier and company directory allowing users interested in CNC machining work to easily access information about us as a supplier, along with what we specialize in, and our contact information.

In addition to our recent involvement with supplier directories and online marketplaces, APM continues to advance our engagement on various social media platforms:

Our Facebook and Twitter feeds continue to garner followers and have proven to be a great source of information on news from our CNC machine shop, industry trends, and the low down on the latest in technology and equipment related to high speed machining.

In 2015, we plan to increase engagement and attract more followers to our LinkedIn Company Page. This valuable business tool now allows for the incorporation of Showcase Pages and a Publishing Platform. We feel this is an ideal forum for sharing the content found on our website and timely updates related to the CNC machine services we provide. Stay tuned and be sure to follow us in the new year.
