Tom Hecht – Executive Vice President of Operations – Cutting, Marking & Finishing, BIOMERICS NLE
Tom began his career at E.I. DuPont De Nemours Corporation in the Medical Products Division. During his 10 years at DuPont he worked in manufacturing to release or re-design medical instruments and improve the reliability of existing diagnostic lab instrumentation through development and adherence of quality standards. He also took on a management role in the machining and inspection departments and then began volunteering to help his friends with their start-up company, Northeast Laser. Tom joined Northeast Laser full time as a partner and over the last 23 years championed the early efforts for automation and implemented the state of the art automated and robotic systems that are in use today. He also managed several moves of NLE as their size grew over the years and required more space for the current 155 plus employees and 5 times more floor space. Tom graduated from Drexel University with a B.S in Mechanical Engineering. Outside of work, Tom continues to use his engineering skills by volunteering for the last four years for the renovation of his local high school Building Committee.
