Edmund Boland is the new General Manager of ANCA CNC Machines.
Edmund is the son of ANCA co-founder Pat Boland and brings an impressive 15-year tenure at ANCA.
Pat Boland, ANCA co-founder said, “When Pat McCluskey and I founded ANCA, our primary goal was to design the best technology that solves real customer problems. I am proud that my son has joined this mission and has accepted this important leadership role in the business to continue fostering a culture of innovation.”
ANCA is a privately owned business celebrating its 50th anniversary next year. Pat McCluskey, ANCA Co-founder comments that “being privately owned brings great benefits as it means that we can focus on investing and developing new innovations while maintaining our long-term view of the market to design products with longevity and customer focus.”
“Technology is truly in our DNA, for example, ANCA’s Integrated Manufacturing System (AIMS) which is one of our latest products could be considered akin to the impact of a printing press and is set to revolutionize the cutting tool industry,” commented Edmund Boland. “I am excited to lead ANCA into a future of continued innovation, growth, and success, while educating the market about the transformative power of our new nanometer control system and ensuring the success of our internal investments such as in our machine shop or our sub-micron metrology equipment.
“We take pride in hosting the only customer competition in our field, the ANCA Tool of the Year, and I am particularly excited that this year we will have a new category of Female Machinist of the Year. Together, these, and many other initiatives will contribute to the continuous growth and prosperity of our esteemed company.”
Edmund’s journey at ANCA began in February 2008, and throughout his career with the company, he has held key positions in the finance, operations, strategy, regional management and applications teams. This diverse experience has afforded him a deep understanding of ANCA’s operations and a comprehensive perspective on the company’s strategic goals.
Prior to assuming his new role as General Manager, Boland led ANCA’s European Branch during the unparalleled challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
