Ep. 30 – Developing a Machining Culture with Victor and Betty DaCruz

By Noah and Lloyd Graff

On today’s podcast, we interviewed Victor and Betty DaCruz, owners of DaCruz Manufacturing in Bristol, Connecticut. Victor and Betty have transformed their company over the last three decades from a multi-spindle screw machine shop with ACMEs and New Britains into a high-tech CNC turning operation. While other companies complain about not being able to find quality employees, DaCruz has created a culture that attracts high level young people to work at the company.

    I agree with Alan…it is tough to find time to listen at a certain time but I could read at any time.

    Didn’t and wont bother listening!

    I will comment on the question as I always do.

    As we say in our ski club:

    “just because I sleep with you, doesn’t mean I have to Ski with you!”

    Marriage is tough enough, mix in another 8 plus hours of work and a commute, the kids, depending on how old they are, may or may not be happy when mom and dad kill each other.

    according to business insider magazine 2018 divorce rates

    Extruding and drawing machine setters, operators and tenders, metal and plastic — 49.6%
    Extruding, forming, pressing and compacting machine setters, operators and tenders — 48.8%

    “Generally” I don’t think it is a good mix, and yes, there are exceptions to most rules.

    just saying…
