Looking for Skilled Mechanical or Hydraulic Press Brake Operators?

Press brake operators are responsible for manufacturing tools, metal and other pieces of equipment using a press brake. Operators use computer numeric controlled (CNC) machines to make punches, bends and cuts into sheet or plate metal. As the demand for these skilled machinists grows, it’s important to partner with a reliable skilled trades staffing agency for just-in-time craft professionals.
