Auburn, AL, April 2014 – Bailey-Harris Construction Company and Touchstone Precision, Inc. (TPI) have been partners since December 2000, when Bailey-Harris began the design and construction of a 30,000 square foot facility for TPI, located at 239 Technology Parkway in Auburn.
TPI, an affiliate company of Dai-Ichi Seiko Co., Ltd., based in Kyoto, Japan, specializes in high precision insert and composite plastic injection molded components and assemblies for the automotive, electronics and medical markets. Since its inception in 1963, Dai-Ichi Seiko has been a leading manufacturer in the precision injection molding industry.
The success of TPI, which was developed stateside in 2000, contributed to a partnership with Bailey-Harris again in 2010, to construct a 9,500 square foot expansion to the existing facility.
Today, in 2014, Bailey-Harris and TPI are working together once again to complete a major expansion of close to 70,000 square feet. This project will allow TPI to move certain processes into a new building, making room in the existing building for more injection molding machines.
Bailey-Harris is proud to welcome Takaharu Tsuchiyama, President of TPI, to Auburn April 6-9, as he makes a visit to the Plains to kick off the major expansion. This is the second expansion for TPI, since Dai-Ichi Seiko decided to locate one of its 12 worldwide manufacturing facilities in this area in 2000.
