SurfacePrep People Rock!

Meet Steve Smith, Sales Representative from SurfacePrep’s MFS/AIT Division

Steve began working in the cutting tools industry in 1992, right after high school. He has been with SurfacePrep for about 2 and a half years now. Steve starting in the shipping and receiving department. Then moved his way into sales and applications, and now he assists leading the sales staff in Denver.

Steve said that the employees at his branch are the best group of people that he has ever worked with. “Everyone is dedicated to their profession and to each other. It all starts at the top though, they created a family environment for us to work in,” Steve said.

MFS/AIT joined the larger SurfacePrep family early 2019, and they brought with them expert knowledge not only in surface preparation but also cutting tools. Steve said that helping to bring the tooling side to SurfacePrep has been a fun adventure. “It seems like it is starting to spread. Several other SurfacePrep locations have begun to grow on the cutting tool side and that is exciting to see.”

Steve said that it has been a fun ride so far, coming from a small, mom & pop store to becoming part of such a large organization. “We have some of the best customers and it makes coming to work so rewarding daily,” he said.

When Steve isn’t busy helping his customers, he enjoys spending time with his family. Also, living in Colorado, he loves being in the outdoors fishing, camping, and 4-wheeling.
