Q1 Starts Fast
2017 has continued the record pace of last year. January and February were record months, and March will be as well. Our new Amada turret could not have come online at a better time. We are grateful for the continued trust our customers place in us, and we promise to continue to deliver the quality parts they expect on-time.

Jeremy Evans Joins Quality Control Team
We continue to improve our best in class quality performance this past year with a pieces good rate of 98.8%. In order to ensure that we continue this level of performance we are adding to our team.
“Jeremy comes to us with sixteen years of quality control experience. He started his career as a Quality Tech and has steadily advanced to his current position of Quality Engineer / CMM Programmer. He has gained his expertise and knowledge through years of hands-on experience in problem-solving and project management,” stated Josh Janeway, Quality Manager. “Most importantly, Jeremy’s character and integrity are in line with the principles and culture that gives Metalworking Solutions its competitive advantage in the marketplace.”
Jeremy resides in Jasper, TN with his wife and daughter. On weekends you might see them boating on the river or hiking one of the many trails in the Jasper/Chattanooga area.
“I’m thankful for the opportunity to become part of the team at Metalworking Solutions. The first thing that I noticed was how everyone is dedicated and works as a team to ensure things are accomplished at the end of the day. I have always wanted to be a part of something different, a family oriented company that values its employees. To me, that’s what makes Metalworking Solutions special.”
Sammy Burrows Takes Over the Front Office
After experiencing ten years of record growth it became ever apparent that we needed someone to take the reigns of our front office and ensure that we stayed organized and on point as an organization and team. We needed someone with a servant leadership mentality ingrained in
their DNA. We didn’t have to look far – in steps Sammy Burrows.
Sammy comes to us with decades of experience from TVA and First Volunteer Insurance. He has owned his own business and served the public for four years as the Chief Administrative Officer of his hometown.
Sammy is a proud father, grandfather, and an avid fan of the Lady Mocs. His love of golf and Alabama Football aligns well with at least half of the front office and will make for interesting dynamics if Tennessee or Auburn Football rise up to challenge for the SEC title.
“I have been close to the Metalworking Solutions Family since its inception, and have marveled at the accomplishments the company has made over the last 10 years. Now that I am part of the team and have gotten to know the entire family, it amazes me even more. The teamwork and drive of each individual team member to be excellent at what they do is like nothing I have ever experienced. How can so much work go on in such a quiet and calm atmosphere is amazing to me. I am blessed to be a part of this team, and will work hard each day to do my part to help grow an already great company even more.”
So, if you call in and happen to get Nick, Jeremy, or Sammy; make sure to welcome them to the family. We are looking forward to seeing their careers and families thrive at Metalworking Solutions.
