With more than two decades of experience in all facets of metal forming and advanced manufacturing, Don can offer creative production ideas that maximize efficiency and improve quality.
Beginning as a punch press operator in 1998, Don quickly achieved journeyworker status in 2001 and gained mastery over all types of metal forming machinery and production processes. Don graduated from Hennepin Technical College and later taught metal forming basics at Hennepin Tech.
Don’s range of expertise also includes estimating and materials procurement, with qualifications that include a Certified Purchasing Manager accreditation from the Institute of Supply Management. From the metal ABCs (aluminum, brass, copper) to the newest high-strength low-alloy steels, Don can recommend the best material for virtually any metal part.
If your need is progressive stamping, fiber laser cutting, fabrication, servo forming or tooling, Don can be your trusted advisor for complex, difficult, or time-sensitive metal part manufacturing projects.
Don is currently board chair for the Twin Cities Precision Metalforming Association and a partner at Ajax. He enjoys boating and water skiing with family and friends.
