Now part of PCC's Engineered Products Division, University Swaging is a unique machining, swaging, and assembly center providing the industry's most technologically advanced structural and kinematic control rod assemblies, flight control mechanisms, and swaged cable assemblies.
Founded in 1947, the company was purchased by Primus in 2000, and before the close of the decade, expanded more than twofold into a new 110,000 square foot facility. The company's success can be attributed to continuity of leadership and a strong vision for growth of capabilities and products. Today the site benefits from shared opportunities and cooperation with KaliStrut Aerospace, which has also maintained a leading market position in the area of metallic rods for more than 35 years.
Recent engineering projects include pylon struts, interior tie rods, hold open rods, flight control rods, wing-to-body fairing support rods, door mechanisms and rods, and structural support rods for Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, and Gulfstream.
Precision Castparts Corp. acquired Primus International in August, 2011.
