About Randy Bossie, Mr. Holt states, “the Canadian market is a mature market that demands a very high level of technical expertise.

He is a trusted, strong leader who understands our customers’ needs.”

I want to make sure that our customers will have access to the resources and technology they need to succeed in today’s ever changing global business climate. The implementation of modern software is as much part of this as is utilizing the latest tooling solutions like the CoroMill 390, with insert size 07, which I am confident will help our customers reach new heights of productivity.”
