A Treat with no Trick

This week, Advance CNC Machining's owner visited our headquarters in Cincinnati and treated our company to a local favorite, Graeter’s ice cream. He did the same last summer, as well.

Last December, we published an article featuring Advance CNC Machining, a shop in Grove City, Ohio. Advance’s owner, Jeremy Hamilton, came to my attention through my longtime friend Giovanni Princippe, who is a turning specialist for DMG MORI who correctly assumed I’d be interested in hearing the company’s story. He was right.

My interest and focus was about how Advance’s business has grown from primarily a machining center house with the addition of sliding headstock Swiss-type capability. It’s a trend I’ve been seeing more of and covering as additional machining capability is finding its way to the shop floors as CNC becomes the programming coin of the realm. The thinking is that if one can program a machining center, then why not a CNC Swiss-type? All that information is in the story.

What’s different about Jeremy is he hasn’t forgotten. Last summer, he visited our headquarters in Cincinnati and treated our company to a local favorite, Graeter’s ice cream. No Cincinnatian worth his salt would pass on such a treat. That was Jeremy’s first visit and treat. 

Last week, he did it again, to the delight of our employees. He met with us, and we caught up with his company and himself.

Usually, we editors make our shop visits, get the story and publish it. In the case of Advance, Jeremy is a rare example of “paying it forward.” He suggested we make this an annual summer treat and the motion was carried unanimously.

Jeremy is an example of the kind people we get the pleasure of meeting and working with. It makes the work less work like. Click here to read more.
