President and CEO Bill Cox was interviewed by Today's Machining World about the history and evolution of Cox Manufacturing.
Today's Machining World's "Swarfcast" podcast hosts, Lloyd and Noah Graff of Graff-Pinkert Co., invited Bill Cox to speak about the evolution of Cox Manufacturing.
Bill’s father started the company in 1956 but died when Bill was age 12. The evening of his father’s funeral a customer had the audacity to ask Bill’s mother if he could buy the company. She asked Bill that night if he was interested in going into the family business and Bill said he was. From that day forward Bill’s mom, a sharp business woman in her own right, taught him the management side of running the company, while the guys in the shop developed his technical skills. By his 20s Bill was taking the helm at Cox Manufacturing.
