I met Bill when I started my apprenticeship at AIMMCo as a Tool and Die maker in 2001. Bill was a CNC programmer at the time and a twenty year veteran for making plastic injection molds and associated tooling. Bill has invested an ample amount time through the years in giving me advise and mentoring me on multiple levels and subjects related the manufacturing world. I value his opinions and advice, which carry allot of weight in my professional decisions. To date, we are still really good friends and we have weekly communication and share industry related knowledge.

I have a deep respect for Mark; His knowledge is second to none in the field of manufacturing. Mark was originally my employer while with Sigma Design. During my time working along side Mark, I have had the rare opportunity to watch and learn from a true great. I have taken the lessons learned from Mark and applied them to my own path. I am now proud to call Mark a college. We converse on a weekly basis and often collaborate on projects instigated by either him or myself.

I have had the pleasure to work with Tony for only a short time. We instantly recognized our level of professionalism and treated each other respectively. I frequently witnessed Toni's ability to work fast and accurately as well as a mutual willingness to learn from one another. I am in frequent contact with Tony and would enjoy the chance to work with him in the future.
