If you want to become a visionary, start by pushing a broom. You’ll earn street credit with employees and understand the nuts and bolts of the operation from the bottom up. 

“I started out sweeping the floor at my dad’s business. He did that on purpose as an introduction into manufacturing,” says Matt Gawlik, president of 3D Graphite & Machining. “Now that he’s gone, I realize he was right … about everything. Over the years, I’ve touched every aspect of the company, from shipping to cleaning the floors to CNC setup, sales, accounting, psychology, and all the way up to where I am right now, which is visionary CEO.”  

3D Graphite & Machining has locations in Schaumburg, Illinois, and Jenison, Michigan, and operates three divisions. One supplies electrical discharge machining (EDM) consumables, a second provides ultra-precision custom electrode design and manufacturing, and the third provides EDM process consulting. Primary markets include the die and mold, medical, and aerospace industries.
