"Where the customer comes first."
At the age of 7, Gerry was cleaning the chips off machines for his dad’s company. When he was 16, he was training coworkers twice his age the art of centerless grinding. Gerry was in the metal working industry when Swiss machines were cam operated, not CNC controlled. He’s seen machines evolve from the Warner Swasey turret lathe to the multi-tasking/multi-spindle machines with live tooling like our Mazak Multiplex. Gerry enjoys keeping up-to-date with machining enhancements and applies his 55 plus years experience to the technology of today. This has helped LaMott Enterprises remain open-minded when using newer and better technologies to take the imaginations of today and manufacture them into the products of tomorrow.
Our experience in this art form makes us second to none.
