Hisco Expands Medical, Automotive and Aerospace Cleanroom Manufacturing Capabilities
Fabrication division doubles capacity with designated equipment for general and cleanroom applications
HOUSTON— September 29, 2017—Hisco Inc., an employee-owned, specialty distribution company announced today it will expand operations into cleanroom manufacturing for medical, automotive and aerospace markets through its Precision Converting fabrication division, a 3M Preferred Converter. The company’s purchase of a second, custom Delta rotary machine means general manufacturing will continue outside the Class A 10K cleanroom, while inside the controlled environment cleanroom-only production will ratchet up.
“The new cleanroom equipment is a testament to Hisco’s commitment to the medical, automotive and aerospace industries,” says Hisco VP of Precision Converting George Caillouette. “We’re seeing the vision come to fruition. Cleanroom production is slated for next quarter, beginning with a new medical application using complex tooling and island placement, along with die-to-die registration.”
Through its Houston, Texas; Corona, California and Addison, Illinois facilities, Precision Converting meets speed-to-market objectives. Project engineering teams offer custom solutions, including CNC prototyping, diecutting, laminating, slitting, cleanroom, assembly and more. Its Delta rotary machines and Class A 10K cleanroom are located at the Precision Converting West facility in Corona.

Today, the international branch network includes 38 stocking locations in three countries: the United States, HiscoMex in Mexico and HiscoCan in Canada.
