Design and Fabrication Machine Shop | Serving the Wine Industry and Other Specialty Industries

Serving the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond since 1979

Chris Randall’s first Punch-Down System (PDS) was designed and fabricated for a Northern California winery in 1979. Since then, we have produced nearly two-hundred Punch-Down Systems, accommodating the diverse needs of winemakers and architects. Today, he is often referred to as “the punch down guy.”

For ease of operation and versatility, the Punch-Down System can be manufactured to be supported by several different mount styles.

Whether building a new winery or upgrading an existing facility, the PDS will be specially designed to best fit your application. The PDS has advanced technologically over time, ultimately allowing trouble-free and employee-friendly operation.
