H. H. Mercer, Inc. was
founded in 1969. The company originally
was located in the Trinity Industrial district
of Dallas, Texas. In 1988 the company
moved to its present location in Mesquite,
H. H. Mercer has been
servicing the Oil Well industry since the
company began. Seeking to diversify the
company moved into other areas of specialty such
as Aircraft Tooling, Medical and Prototyping.
The company has made a
commitment to keep current with technology while
holding true to proven methods. With each
year technology brings with it new and exciting
equipment, methods and challenges. H. H.
Mercer has embraced these changes and attempted
to grow with them.
Original NC programming was
accomplished with a time-share system on old
large mainframes. When H. H. Mercer first
took possession of NC controlled machinery,
personal computers were just coming into their
own. Back then the machines ran on punched
paper tape as there were no floppy discs and CNC
was unheard of. Much of the NC programming
was done by hand, written down then typed into a
terminal to be processed into a punched paper or
Mylar tape that was then fed into the machine.
Now we program using
workstations and CAM software. CAD
software allows us to create drawings or accept
CAD drawings from customers.
H. H. Mercer is truly an
international company with customers from around
the globe. Many of our aircraft tools have
been used in maintenance shops on almost every
continent of the world. Our aircraft
tooling has gained the reputation of being some
of the finest available.
