There’s a little shop in the heart of Goffstown, New Hampshire, that is home to three prominent companies that are invaluable partners in the manufacturing / machining industry.
The parent company is SPS Spindle Parts and Service, LLC, best known to its customers as simply SPS. SPS has been in existence since 2003 – founded by brothers Mike and Greg Gunski – and has played in active role in spindle repair, product sales, and services for its vast pool of customers.
Under the SPS umbrella is Quantum Precision Group who are a one-stop bearing and industrial supply shop which offer bearings, ball screw repair, motor repair, and power transmission supplies and services. The last company is Gunnex, a machine tool onsite taper and grinding service that are on the road 24/7 servicing their clients’ needs.
That’s what we’re here to tell you.
As a machining company – one that relies on your fleet of machines operating at an optimal level for production’s sake (because without production where’s the bottom-line, right?) – you fear the possibility of the dreaded “downtime,” which means a working piece of your operation is down, and thus, your team of human resources is likely scratching their collective head wondering how to justify their place on the shop floor as well.
The first obvious call that most of us look to is the manufacturer of the machine in question. And, upon making this call, you quickly learn that the waiting game is a very real thing (in many cases it’s the stuff nightmares consist of…) “Sure, we’ll be there in a month,” is a response you’ve likely heard – many times… If you’re a small shop – one that the big machine tool dealers aren’t making as much money on – that turnaround time inflates from there.
You know the drill.
Enter SPS (and with it, Gunnex and Quantum).
What sets SPS apart from the “competition” is their ability to service your needs fast. In most cases, a diagnostic consultation, be it on the phone or at your location is achieved in 48 hours. In a world where productivity pays the bills, that’s a very important and, quite frankly, imperative distinction to make.
SPS is your go to source for help. They don’t exist to simply sell you a solution or service set that is “out of the box.” They treat you and your operation with respect and are trusted partners in the industry as consultation specialists that do what’s right by you and your unique operative goals. 60-70% of their business exists right here in New England, but their reach is felt throughout the entire country.

Downtime is not an option in today’s manufacturing plants. Machine tool dealers in New England and abroad have become so large it’s hard from them to cater to the smaller outfits.

From new pieces and parts to spindle requalification and taper grind repairs and beyond, SPS is on call to get you up and running again. Their hands on approach and convenience driven operation (you can ship your spindle / issue to them, or they can come to you) is with your shop’s success in mind.
SPS operates with the mantra that, sure, you can have the best tool in the world, but if your spindle isn’t performing correctly your entire production is going to be jeopardized. They’re here to get it in order. From initial consultation, to preventative vibration analysis maintenance solutions, to full on reactive fixes, SPS is ready when you’re in need.
