General Manager

Andrew previously managed a food production plant, where he was responsible for shipping, receiving, and all financial transactions.

Having managed upwards of 40 employees at a time, sometimes covering three shifts running 24 hours a day, he has found that many of the same principles of quality and time management have translated to his current role at Taurus.

He's also experienced in inventory management, quality control system implementation, and management of company capital.



Chief Engineer

As a mechanical designer in the aerospace industry, Joseph worked on airframe and satellite structures, with a focus on diagnosing and providing information to overcome manufacturing concerns.

He has had many years’ experience in design and documentation using multi-CAD software. He has had additional professional training in scheduling, team leadership, and interfacing with all levels of personnel, which have proven crucial in his position at Taurus.



CNC/CAM Supervisor

Having worked in the cycling industry at nearly all levels, including technical representative and World Cup Mechanic, Andy has extensive experience in proprietary design and providing feedback to design engineers.

He most recently worked as a CNC programmer and machinist for a large communications company that manufactures microwave communications products that send and receive signal from satellites.

To further his knowledge of machining techniques, Andy has attended numerous training classes for AutoDesk, HAAS Automation, and SolidWorks.

He has been working in various forms of fabrication and machine shops since 1998 where he started on manual lathes and vertical mills. Since 2012 he has been programing in 3 axis and 3+1 milling in SolidWorks and AutoDesk HSMWorks.

Some challenges he has recently focused on have been learning to create better finishes in steal parts and working with tool suppliers to ensure customers get the best products possible.

In his free time Andy rides a 26” mountain bike specifically designed for bike parks and skate parks. He is also in the process of working on and building a custom 1973 Chevrolet C10 truck with a modern engine, air bag suspension, and updated air conditioning.
