It’s been a fantastic trip and an amazing closing day to the SIAMS 2022 exhibition! A hectic schedule and more talking and trying to decipher French than I’m built for, but super worthwhile.
SIAMS is in the village of Moutier, in the heart of the “Jura” region, which spans a distinct area in the lower mountains overlapping the border of Switzerland and France. It is the historic center of the Swiss watch industry, but also is a dense cluster of high precision manufacturing like probably no other in the world.
For our customer base of “Swiss-type” machining (“décolletage” in French), you literally can find the best of everything, including the awesome products of a particular company in Oceanside California.
Unlike in the past, Masa is now known and very much respected. I was often introduced almost like visiting royalty as “Mr. Masa”. Several people even commented “You cut your hair” (in French of course), having seen the early video Bernie took of me describing the product at IMTS 2016.
We are still the new kids on the block, but known and perhaps even admired.
I can’t say this without tears in my eyes how so very proud and grateful I am for the integrity and effort everyone puts into making Masa the literal BEST in the world at what we do!
With joy and gratitude,
