Success Story: Peters’ Heat Treating

Peters’ Heat Treating, a leader in the precision parts heat treating industry, serves customers in various industries, ranging from small shops to large corporations. As the company continued to grow in both sales and workforce, they realized it was becoming increasingly important to do strategic planning in order to have action items to safeguard growth and mitigate risk, especially when a pandemic hit in 2020. They turned to the NWIRC.

Together, we mapped out:

  • A 3-year plan to not only increase sales but also to improve customer diversity and productivity. 
  • A Vision 2021 plan that included action programs to meet or exceed the company’s goal of a 5% sales growth year over year, as well as a 2.5% growth in productivity each year.
  • A succession plan for the future.

“We find it extremely important for an outside consultant to investigate and analyze our business to ensure that we are realistic with our vision and goals. The project with NWIRC was seamless and the deliverable met all expectations. We look forward to working with them in future years to assist in our continued business success.”
