Yvette Pagano, president of CAR Engineering and Manufacturing, Inc. (Victor, NY) lives in a bifurcated manufacturing world. Half of the income generated by this 50-person job shop derives from the company’s regional leadership in multi-slide production metal stamping. This is as it should be, since excellence in the field of metal stamping was the intention of Yvette’s father, Charlie Rogers, when he founded the company in 1986.
The other half of the business is dedicated to precision CNC manufacturing with a dozen 3– and 4-axis CNC mills and 10 CNC lathes serving a diverse base of companies in the aerospace, defense, medical, and consumer goods industries. This CNC stream of business was initiated early in the previous decade by the former company president who had considerable expertise in CNC manufacturing along with good relationships with potential customers. Today, a wall runs through the center of CAR Engineering’s plant, with separate staff and equipment on either side, serving their own unique customers.
