Acme Cryogenics, manufacturer of cryogenic gas equipment and systems, celebrates Dave Edge and Tom Stroble’s 40th anniversaries with the company.

Both were hired, Edge as a machinist and Stroble as a summer part-time employee, a few months apart in 1977 to set up and operate the automatic turret lathes at Acme Screw Machine Products (the original company name). A short time later, the company shifted directions to concentrate solely on the industrial gas industry and selling the newly adopted CGA standard cryogenic liquid transfer fittings. They never looked back. Stroble eventually became the Machine Shop Supervisor when Edge became Plant Manager.

Forty years later, Edge and Stroble are still dedicated to the company. Edge is the Director of Technical Sales and Marketing, responsible for a team of technical sales and customer service people and Stroble is the Production Supervisor for the Machine Shop and valve production lines, he reviews and processes orders through production and deals with the day-to-day production issues to make sure customer orders ship on time.

Edge and Stroble both played a significant role in the company during the 1980’s with the conversion to the CNC machines used today for making CGA fittings. They both pride themselves on the work they have done over the years. Dave Fritz, Acme Cryogenics CEO, recognises this milestone, saying, “Both the Acme team and our thousands of customers thank Edge and Stroble for their many years of leadership and commitment to excellence.”
