Our Founder and Company History

Originally operating under the name of Advanced Manufacturing Solutions, LLC, our company was founded in 2001 by Douglas Boyer, Jr. who had over 25 years of experience working at Hurco Companies, a major US machine tool builder. In the years thereafter, Doug continued to sell industrial metalworking equipment while struggling through a nationwide major downturn in manufacturing after the 9-11 attack. During this time, Doug met Gotz Fiessler and started developing contacts and techniques to promote the Fiessler European line of industrial safety devices in North America. Their retrofittable AKAS line of press brake safety lasers became quite popular. Soon customers were ordering the retrofits avoiding OSHA fines without having to replace costly machines to keep operators safe. Several years ago, the company’s name was changed to Press Brake Safety, more adequately defining our relationship with our major product line of safety equipment for press brakes. Joining the family business in 2013 and taking on the leadership role, Jason Boyer came on board, and as President of the company, now oversees the sales and marketing. Another addition to the team was Kimberly Gregonis-Boyer who is the Chief Financial Officer of Press Brake Safety. Since day one, our mission was to be a primary safety product provider, offering solutions to the industrial sector throughout North America
