Two quotes that inspired me to pursue a career in the Machine Tool Industry:
“Real wealth and improvements in life can only be created through the production of new and innovated products. ”
“Everything we use in our lives is only a step or two away from a machine tool.
I began my career in the machine tool industry as a Service Technician servicing and installing lathes, mills, drill presses, optical comparators and grinders. After a few years I had the opportunity to move into sales and later management for REM Sales, Boston Digital and The Haas Factory Outlet. These companies provided advanced technologies and new manufacturing techniques to industries including surgical devices, aerospace, aircraft engines, motor cycles, firearms and a host of other manufacturing segments. Our engineers helped pioneer new manufacturing processes that significantly improved the quality and productivity of the components being manufactured in these industries. It was always my commitment and ambition to provide the highest quality products, support and after sales service to every customer.
