I have 30 years experience in the cutting tool industry. The majority of this time spent designing and producing insert tooling for highly specialized applications. I am interested in working for an international company having spent a considerable amount of time in Europe and Asia. I am most interested in the raw materials (carbide powder, carbide blanks, and poly crystalline diamond material) side of the business because research and development was the area that I have devoted most of my time. I gained a thorough understanding of this material and the manufacturing process by working closely with suppliers collaborating to improve product quality and identify the specific requirements of the domestic North American markets. I have developed complete business plans from scratch including the construction of a cutting tool facility, extensive sales, marketing and distribution plans and close work with major producers of the specialized grinding machinery required to convert these raw materials into a finished product.
