TULIP MEDIA GROUP Phone: (877) 719-8919 • Website: 11 PRESIDENTIAL WAY WOBURN, MA 01801 USA 781-994-5000 Welcome to Precision Matters Magazine! It’s incredible to think that we find ourselves on the cusp of another decade. In a few months, it will be 2020! It feels strange just writing that. The Boston Centerless team continues to focus on providing new, better and more efficient methods of producing and delivering precision metals to the Medical Device, Aerospace, Contract Manufacturing and other industries. In this fourth edition of Precision Matters, we will tell you ways to increase the convenience in—and remove the hassle from—procuring and receiving high-quality materials. To support our customers across the globe, we have continued to expand our presence outside of the United States. We want to be in a position to support all of the plants of our international customers. Always looking to improve operations while increasing our service level, we’ve added more equipment and capabilities since our last issue. Inside this magazine, you’ll learn about our new automated precision machined bar end chamfering machine. And my favorite part of the magazine is when we spotlight one of our best and brightest “artisans.” Our artisans combine their years of proprietary processing skills and meticulous workmanship with a desire to wow the customer. I hope you enjoy Precision Matters IV! Steven Tamasi President & CEO
