MFN Sept 2015: Developing Top Quality Equipment One Machine At A Time!

headerMike was recently interviewed by MFN (Metal Finishing News) to gain an insight into the history, products and future vision of Langtry Blastech Technologies Inc.

MFN was able to get an interview with Michael Langtry, Founder and President of Langtry Blast Technologies Inc.. (?) MFN: Tell us a bit about how Langtry Blast Technologies Inc. was developed. (!) M.L.: When I immigrated to Canada from Ireland, I accepted a position with a company in the blasting/peening business. It was an innovative company and over the years I worked in many of the different departments and gained a lot of knowledge about the blasting/peening process. I became Production Manager and was responsible for overseeing everything from Design to Shipping, which included engineering drawings, parts, quotes, programming and design. While working within this company, I became intrigued in the business of manufacturing and the peening process and the possibilities they presented. I was amazed to learn about the large number of unique items that go through this process; everything from airplane parts to shopping carts. It made me think about the different equipment designs and technologies that might be used to introduce automated blasting/peening equipment into more businesses. It was at this time that I decided to utilize my visions, ideas and concepts and develop a company of my own. Having the knowledge that I developed over the years of working in the industry, I began building Langtry Blast Technologies Incorporated. I have now been in the industry for 25+ years, and Langtry Blast Technologies Inc. has been building high quality equipment ranging in a vast number of proven designs for the past twelve successful years.
