A Special Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Ultra Machining Company (UMC) recently marked the official opening of its recent state-of-the art expansion with a ribbon cutting ceremony on June 15.
Don Tomann, CEO and Owner of UMC, opened the ceremony by thanking and honoring the people who contributed to the company over the past 54 years.
“We’re celebrating breaking through into something new. That’s exciting in and of itself,” said Tomann. “We’re also going to take this opportunity to dedicate this building, giving honor where honor is due. And for me and my wife, Jenny, that honor goes to God.”
Tomann also shared stories from UMC’s history, showcasing the company’s foundation in the values instilled by his father, UMC founder, Terry Tomann.
“Terry’s philosophy was that if we go beyond others by supplying a great workplace for our employees and people who invest in the business, then we as a group would stand and go beyond others for our customers,” said Tomann.
Senator Bruce Anderson shared his excitement for the project and the opportunities it will bring to the local community and Minnesota. “While UMC may be based right here in Monticello, the company plays a global role as a leader in precision manufacturing and machining services to medical device and aerospace manufacturers around the world.” said Anderson. “By opening this nearly 60,000 square foot expansion, UMC will have a greater opportunity to provide more high-tech jobs and support support Monticello’s continuing growth.”
