defines that part and defines us as a shop. We take great pride in our work and our reputation.”
Buying a machine tool is easy, but Brian is quick to credit the talented people who make the magic happen. “We’ve built a great team over the years, and the team out in the shop deliver for us every day,” concludes Brian. “We give them the impossible and they find a way to get
it done, making us all look good. We are nothing without each other, but our “quality overrides everything” approach is what makes us successful. Kurt is very much a guy who believes in the investment of time and equipment as well as persistence. Spend the time teaching our people and the next time they will know, and we all become better for it. Our theory has always been that if you make a correct part, that looks great, and service the hell out of the customer you hold an advantage over most shops.”
