Jeff Sturtevant Hired as General Manager of Absolute’s Mason, Ohio, Technical Center
Absolute Machine Tools is pleased to announce Jeff Sturtevant, formerly of DMG Mori, has been hired as the new General Manager of our Mason Technical Center in Mason, Ohio. He will oversee sales and operations for southern Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
Sturtevant comes to Absolute from DMG Mori USA, Cincinnati, Ohio, where he was vice president in charge of operations in Ohio and Kentucky for sales, engineered solutions, service and parts.
“Joining Absolute and having the opportunity to work directly with founder Steve Ortner is an excellent fit for me. The ability to provide reliable, cost-effective technical solutions on proven machine platforms with the Absolute Team is a winning combination for our customers,” he said. “Stability is important to our customers and Absolute Machine Tools has been a constant in this industry for the past 30 years.”
Sturtevant’s career began in 1979 at Ingersoll Milling Machine, where he worked as a machine operator and programmer. In 1985, he joined Cincinnati Milacron as sales engineer and later became vice president of APMD – National Sales. He next opened his own distributorship and contract machine shop specializing in machining stainless steel exhaust components for Tier 1 and 2 suppliers to automotive OEMs. When much of that work moved overseas, Sturtevant went to work for DMG America.
Jeff joined Absolute Machine Tools in August, bringing a unique perspective as a builder, distributor and user of machine tools.
“Absolute continues to be a solutions provider for manufacturers throughout the United States,” said Absolute Machine Tools president and CEO Steve Ortner. “Adding Jeff Sturtevant to our team further ensures our customers that Absolute Machine Tools is a resourceful and valuable solutions partner for U.S. manufacturers.”
