Video: “LaunchPoint” Premiere Episode

A new series from Edge Factor explores how manufacturing professionals were "launched" into their careers.

“LaunchPoint” is a new TV show from the creators of “The Edge Factor” in which manufacturing professionals are the stars. The first episode tells the story of Martin Edge, an immigrant to the U.S. who found work he loves and a livelihood for his family by pursuing a career in CNC machining. Today, Mr. Edge is a production manager with Tempe, Arizona-based Nichols Precision.

“LaunchPoint” airs weekly on Arizona station Cox 7, though viewers everywhere can see the show’s episodes on the station’s website. The entire first episode is included here—with commercials. The commercials themselves are interesting, coming from supporters of the show such as Pima Community College, Mesa Public Schools and Haas Automation.
