LOC Precision

MoonRockets1 300x146LOC PRECISION was acquired by Barry Lynch in 2000 from Ron Schultz of Ohio. Over the next 16 years Barry took LOC to the next level by investing in LOC to do more….fly higher, more affordably and added touches of modern day quality. What Barry has given to LOC, he set industry standards for others to follow. Expanding the company to do more for education, youth and investing in the next generation of HPR flyers. In November 2016 LOC changed hands again, and it was more than a business transaction. It turned into a friendship! For Dave Barber and Jason Turicik of Plymouth Wisconsin it is a dream come true to have the blessing to work with their passions for design every day. Dave and Jason bring experience as previous owners of Yank Enterprises. As young entrepreneurs they had a catalog of over 20 rocket kits before the age of 21.

They bring fresh insight and new ideas. They promise to deliver exciting new selections, but also bring back "Retro" versions of the much loved classics from the good ol' days. They love working close with customers, and are open to phone calls, emails and Facebook feedback. They are happy to discuss custom orders and special requests. Along with traditions they will work to keep the relationships with educators to pass this hobby along to the next generation starting out through school. Very importantly, they value the ability to create and offer kits that are affordable for a Dad to take kids out to a launch. These guys are dedicated to maintain the high quality and service that LOC provided to customers over the last 31 years.
