Ed Beaumont has returned as president of Beaumont Machine, a manufacturer of EDMs and EDM consumables, as the company relocates to a new facility in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area. 

“We needed a fresh start, and we were committed to making it happen on every levelfrom our physical location to the machine offerings to the markets served and more,” Mr. Beaumont says. 

He goes on: “I started the company over 25 years ago, had success in the aerospace industry here in Cincinnati and elsewhere. After five years of semi-retirement, I returned to run the company with three goals in mind: I wanted to relocate the business to a larger facility; expand the machine line to offer more companies the benefits of our unique designs; and lastly, grow our consumables business, a key to long-term relationships with EDM customers.” Read more
