Taking Flight with a Strong Legacy
Pilot Precision Products is the parent company of duMont Minute Man industrial broaches and Hassay Savage broaching tools. The company is also the exclusive U.S. distributor of Magafor and GMauvais USA products.
With multiple brands in the duMont portfolio, Eric Hagopian, owner and CEO, formed Pilot Precision Products in 2019. Pilot Precision Products traces its roots back to 1945 when the duMont Co. began producing broaching tools. Eric purchased the company in 2016 after growing and selling his family’s aerospace and defense contract manufacturing firm. Eric then acquired Hassay Savage, a manufacturer of rotary and index broaching tools that also distributed Magafor and GMauvais products. Eric brings valuable end-user insight and experience to the company.
Pilot’s home base is located in South Deerfield, Massachusetts, a Western MA community right off of Interstate 91, located about two hours from Boston and 10 minutes from the college towns of Amherst and Northampton.
