Archer's Company consists of two primary geniuses:
Founder and Partner in Archers Company, Frank is a Master Pattern Maker with over 25 years of experience in pattern making. Several years ago, Frank decided he wanted to go into business for himself. However, Frank's dream for a new business was much bigger than creating just another pattern shop.
Frank knew that pattern makers are often privileged with information regarding manufacturing and design issues that customers are trying to overcome. Frank saw this as an opportunity to go where other pattern makers don't, by offering service solutions to these manufacturing and design challenges, not just product. Frank shared his vision with his life long friend, design engineer Ken Pingel.
Ken is an engineering designer with an extensive background in electrical, hydraulics and pneumatic systems. Additionally, Ken has an extensive background in the design and development of product-handling equipment and new product development.
Archers was born in the summer of 1997 with Frank and Ken as equal partners.
Since conception, Archers Company has been privileged enough to have some role in the design and development of all the items you see on this web site. Customers have discovered Archers Company is the place they can bring their ideas or manufacturing question for both development and solutions.
