As a daredevil, husband, inventor and father, Martin Edge does everything from playing with his kids to jumping out of planes. After winning a Green Card Lottery, Martin and his family moved from South Africa to the USA, where his sense of adventure was reignited.
As a student in the machining program at Gateway Community College, Martin was a challenge to his instructors as he eagerly wanted to jump on the $200,000 machines, and they struggled to rein him in and teach him the basics.
By the time he launched his career at Nichols Precision as a Production Manager, Martin was itching to get his hands on the latest and greatest technology. “His frustration lies in the fact that he is going 100mph, while the rest of the world is at 50,” laughed his employer, Dante Fierros.
