Our Process

The Progressive Systems Difference

When you get to know how we work, you’ll understand what separates us from the rest.

Engineering & Design

Experienced engineers handle designing and concepting in-house based on customer criteria and on-site needs assessments.


In response to specific customer needs, requirements, and the type of products being produced, drawings and layouts are prepared to reflect customization based on previous designs.

Manufacturing and Testing

Customers are always invited to review progress on their machines during the fabrication and assembly stages. Prior to shipment extensive Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) is common.

On-Site Implementation

The completed machine is delivered to the site, reassembled and installed by the same team that was involved in the design and building process. And we stay until the machine is in production.

Training, Support, and Maintenance

Support is available on-site or remotely from our world class service department, including the techs who designed, built, and installed the machine.
