PDS has deep roots in the San Antonio biotech industry:
- Our machine shop got its start as part of a startup biotechnology company in San Antonio that manufactured a biomedical implant device. When the biotech company was sold and operations moved out of state, the shop became integrated into a new biotech start-up to develop and manufacture its biomedical wound healing product.
- After 5 years with the subsequent start-up, we decided to strike out on our own in 2013 to become a full service machine shop open to the San Antonio community and surrounding areas.
- Since then, we’ve expanded our services to work with clients from all over Texas and throughout the country. Our clients come from many diverse industries: oil and gas innovations, robotics, DNA testing, the auto industry and even food preparation. We are proud to call Converse our home.
We support science education in any way we can. We encourage young minds to dream big. As part of our ongoing outreach to the local community, PDS is honored to be a part of the First Mentorship Program in San Antonio since its inception 5 years ago. Through this program, Joe has served as a sponsor and mentor to robotic teams in several San Antonio high schools, working with students to design and manufacture robot parts for national robotics competitions. Members of our team also volunteer time to help work on the projects of masters and doctoral students at the UTSA School of Engineering.
