TITAN has fast become the voice of the manufacturing industry. Through his story, TITAN shares a message of hope and redemption that the country and world need today. With his expertise in running an elite aerospace CNC shop, TITAN offers practical tools and inspiration to students, educators, shop owners, and business leaders around the world.

TITAN Gilroy is the owner of TITAN America MFG, an elite aerospace CNC Machine shop in Northern California. He is also the Executive Producer and Star of the television series, TITANS of CNC (formerly TITAN–American Built). The series is a platform to engage a new generation of machinists, inventors and builders. TITAN also pioneered the largest FREE CNC educational platform, dedicated to training and inspiring students, educators and shop owners from around the world. The platform, which launches Fall 2016, will be an invaluable resource to bring about true change in the manufacturing industry.

TITAN’s upbringing was not a recipe for success, however. During his childhood, he grew up in a broken home filled with violence, alcoholism and rage. He soon found his identity in fighting and built a reputation on his aggressive and destructive nature. Multiple accounts of assault landed TITAN in a sixteen year prison sentence. The fighting continued and he soon found himself in solitary confinement for six months. With the help of Top Rank Boxing, TITAN was released early and began fighting for his second chance, ultimately being recognized as one of the greatest up and coming fighters in the sport. Unable to escape his demons, TITAN was pulled back into the street violence of his past. Not wanting to land back into prison, he walked away from professional boxing and found himself in a CNC machine shop where his life would change forever…

Testimonials


From Ryan Kutz/ Aztalan Engineering-
Here are just a few examples from my experience with PMPA, including committee involvement and National Technical Conference participation:
1. 700+, and counting, machine/man hours saved, at $90/hr., resulting from a 10-minute discussion I had with someone willing to share ideas.   That’s $63,000 saved, the trip there and back cost $1,575 in total. That’s 40X payback, there was no struggle to find an ROI on this trip.
2. I was asked to send pictures of used carbide for a session. This prompted an examination of our carbide failure modes, guess what happened to our tooling costs there after? ......
