SBA 504 Spotlight: HCDC Helps Machine Shop Wray Precision Purchase New Facility

Wray Precision is a part manufacturer for industries like amusement park roller coasters, commercial HVAC, gasoline refineries and generation plants, and medical hardware. Owner and president Steve Dorgan purchased half the business when he joined Wray Precision in 1998, and purchased the other half in 2008. In the meantime the business blossomed and needed to expand. Dorgan came to HCDC to help with the real estate lending. “HCDC walked me through the SBA 504 loan process every step of the way, which I really needed since I had never purchased commercial real estate before. They also helped me out with a tricky leased land situation that also helped pave the way for future commercial real estate purchases,” says Dorgan. Wray Precision’s new property is triple the size of the former location at 12,000 sq ft versus 4,000 sq ft. “This new space has allowed us to add machines and store materials. It also enabled us to have a conference room which is more professional and shows better to clients,” adds Dorgan.
