Partnering with Google Street View services, Gilman Precision (Grafton, WI) continues to lead the manufacturing industry in customer interactivity by providing a virtual tour of its facilities. They are one of the first advanced manufacturing facilities in the nation to develop this advanced feature using Google’s services. It overcomes a challenge for many out-of-state customers who cannot physically visit Gilman’s shop to conceptualize the size, capabilities, organization and cleanliness of the facility.
Now, the Gilman website and Google Maps display the company’s high-performing operations with this user-friendly, technologically-driven solution. This tour allows the user to navigate through the main doors and around the factory, including the class 10,000-level spindle clean room.
