Cost Accountant
If you are a detail oriented Cost Accountant with experience in a manufacturing environment and strong analytical skills, Precorp wants to speak with you!
PRECORP was founded in 1986 to manufacture Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) drills using their patented vein process. These drills found success drilling precision fastener holes in Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composites (CFRP). Being a special round tool company, Precorp applied the vein technology to a variety of tool types such as reamers, end mills, spot facers and countersink tools across all machining industries. In the early 2000’s, Precorp expanded its capabilities and added solid carbide special round tools to their offering. In an attempt to keep manufacturing close to the customer, Precorp has three facilities in the U.S. (Utah, Michigan and South Carolina) and one facility in Delmenhorst, Germany. In 2013, Sandvik acquired Precorp, Inc. and today Precorp, Inc. works within the Sandvik Coromant organization. This allows a global presence for Precorp products and positions Precorp to be a global leader in engineered cutting tool solutions.
