I am forwarding my resume in hopes of obtaining

employment back into the machining industry with an important company such as yours. I have many qualities I have not stated on my resume for brief history review. I have worked as a supervisor, as well as, ordering, staging, and directing jobs in a tightened schedule flow. I look for detail and quality in employees while appropriately placing them on the most compatible machining process they possess. I setup Gleasan Hobs, Mills, Lathes, and Grinders. I am a tooling designer and have extensive maintenance experience. I have designed multiple cost saving ideas with the companies I worked and both Boeing and Umbra Cuschinetti where they have utilized many of my cost and manufacturing improvements. I know how the manufacturing business operates and I strive to complete and find solutions for improvement`s. We are willing to relocate anywhere for the right company for secure employment. You will not be disappointed in my work ethics.
