In this short video, John Groth of Groth Manufacturing describes his shop’s newest capability, CNC Swiss-type machining. The video is one of many short films in which the shop owner discusses various capabilities of his Chicago-area contract manufacturing business. He says he commissioned the videos because he observed that the buyers of machined parts increasingly are not manufacturing professionals, but instead are purchasing professionals who might have little knowledge of machining. He found that a YouTube page provides an engaging way to explain what the shop can do.
