PDQ Workholding was founded in 2010 by six veterans of the workholding industry. In 2014, PDQ Tooling was started as a sister company to PDQ Workholding; this division of PDQ focused on custom cutting tools. Starting in 2019, the Tooling and Workholding divisions combined in order to better support our customers and provide synergistic solutions. PDQ also earned its AS9100D certification in 2019 to expand into the aerospace industry. Download PDQ’s AS9100D Certification.
Although a good portion of our work is still domestic, we regularly ship fixtures and cutting tools to Thailand, South Africa, and Mexico. We’ve also built fixtures for projects that are currently running parts in Canada, China, India, Brazil, and Argentina. Our product is on almost every continent in just about every corner of the world. We have extensive experience working with customers from Mexico; two of our designers are fluent in Spanish, and we take regular trips to Mexico to visit and support our customers there.
Our goal at PDQ is to provide our customers with the best possible solution to make their project go as smoothly as possible. We stand behind our work and will support our customers if issues arise at any phase of the project. Lean operating practices and short chain of command allow us to react quickly and effectively.
