Hello and welcome to the first edition of Precision Matters, a Boston Centerless magazine. Two thousand eighteen marks our 60-year anniversary, and what better way to take a look back as well as share some exciting, growing developments within our organization than to put it in print. We will share some of our history and the threads that have held true since day one. We will highlight ways that we’ve evolved over the years in continual pursuit of helping our customers achieve hassle-free operational excellence. In addition to matters pertaining to Boston Centerless, you will also find articles from national thought leaders to assist you in your quest for success. In this inaugural issue, three members of our leadership team will share their perspectives on issues that we hope you will find interesting and relevant to your manufacturing business. Topics include a growing problem that has garnered a great deal of attention on a national scale: the chronic shortage of skilled workers. In the world of precision machining, it turns out that there are solutions that can mitigate this problem through the improvement of the productivity of the skilled workers you already have. As we celebrate our 60th year in business, we are excited to share with you stories of the people, processes, and values that have contributed to our success as a business. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our customers and suppliers for your continued support over the years. We hope you find the content of this publication relevant, interesting, and useful. Thank you for your interest in Boston Centerless and American manufacturing. I hope you enjoy reading
