The start of production is inching closer at Miniature Precision Components as a massive machine has been set in place at the company’s building in Morrison.The machine arrived on a 130-foot trailer with a total vehicle weight around 100 tons, according to Warren County director of economic development Jeff McCormick.“The machine has been set in place and is now in the process of being put together and hooked up,” said McCormick, who is at the site on a daily basis.Morrison resident Chris Burton has been hired as MPC’s site operations manager and has spent considerable time training at company headquarters in Wisconsin. McCormick says a few other employees have been hired as well.“It’s my understanding they did some interviewing and had some testing at Motlow and have hired their first five or six employees,” said McCormick. “I think the plan is to take them to Wisconsin for training before Christmas.”MPC manufactures highly engineered molded plastic components for the automotive industry, as well as for commercial customers supplying Nissan, Ford, Chrysler, General Motors, Honda, Volkswagen, John Deere, Harley-Davidson, and others.
