As we celebrate our 40th year in business, Swiss Precision Machining is pleased to announce that Stephanie LaVezzi has joined the company as our new Sales Manager. Stephanie comes to SPM from LaVezzi Precision where she had been developing and growing their medical machining business since 1992.
Stephanie began her sales career at the company that her great-grandfather founded in 1908. When she started, they were focused on manufacturing high precision machined components for the motion picture industry. Stephanie was given the responsibility to learn about the medical device industry and bring on medical OEMs. She was so successful that the medical machining business was almost 99% of the company’s total business when she left.
In addition to the responsibilities of the Sales and Marketing Manager role, Stephanie was also responsible for developing, implementing, and managing the ISO 13485 quality system. An ISO certification is provided by the International Organization for Standardization—a non-governmental group which sets standards for more than 160 industries. An ISO 13485 certification is difficult to achieve and is essential for machining companies that work with medical device manufacturers.
Stephanie is eager to pursue her vision for excellence in medical machining. She says, “I love working with medical device companies because I know what we are doing makes a difference in the lives of people. I’m manufacturing components that become part of a life-saving or life-improving device. In addition, components for the medical industry must be of the highest quality which make them more challenging and I love a challenge.”
Stephanie’s achievements reveal a bold leader with a passion for machining and a commitment to excellence. “My goal is to provide high precision contract manufacturing services to medical and dental device companies that are seeking the highest level of quality and customer service.”
Stephanie is a graduate of Marquette University and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with specialties in Marketing and Management.
We are excited about the tremendous experience and dedication that Stephanie LaVezzi brings to SPM. Please join us in welcoming her to the team.
