Precision Drive Systems operates worldwide service locations, providing manufacturers with better-than-new repairs and rebuilds (within 1 micron) for precision machining spindles for material removal applications. Since 1996, PDS factory-trained engineers and technicians have successfully rebuilt and supported more than 40,000 spindles globally.


Since 1996, PDS has exclusively depended on trade shows and person-to-person sales visits to build the business. There was no annual strategic marketing plan and minimal measurement of marketing activities.


Precision Drive Systems (PDS) hired Gotham owner Woody Stoudemire to direct their marketing program in mid-2017. Woody provides marketing management, annual marketing budgeting, yearly marketing strategies, customer surveys, analytical data analysis, and market research for PDS. By adding a new website design, pay-per-click marketing, social media, and email marketing, Gotham has significantly helped the profitability of PDS while raising brand awareness and sales opportunities in the woodworking, stone, and marble, glass, composites, and metalworking industries. In a 2020 to 2021 comparison, website lead conversions have grown over 389%!
