Tessaryzk’s goals for MiQ Partners include expanding the company’s position and footprint as a leading manufacturing, build-to-print and custom automation partner for medical, life sciences, aerospace and other industries. With locations in Ohio and California, MiQ Partners serves numerous firms while leading the custom manufacturing industry to new standards for efficiencies, innovative problem solving, customer care, and production outcomes.
Tessarzyk has a degree in economics and business management from the University of Hamburg, and an advanced degree in mechanical engineering from the University of The Federal Armed Forces, also in Hamburg.
For many years, MiQ Partners operated as TSS Technologies and R&3D. In 2019, the two companies were integrated and rebranded as MiQ Partners to reflect the manufacturing intelligence and decades of experience delivered to clients across multiple industries.
