AM&T’s Foundation on Quality
Stanley Stedman founded Alexander Machine & Tool Co., Inc. in 1969 with just one manual milling machine and one turning center.
After years of working in the Quality Control Department at a Defense Contractor, Stanley became a partner at Alexander Enterprises in 1965. Alexander Enterprises was a job shop making shower valves for a temperature control company. Stanley founded AM&T with a focus on quality and dedication to customer satisfaction. Those values remain at the core of the company today.
New Leader, Markets and Expanded Capabilities
Tammy Soper, President
Stanley’s daughter, Tammy Soper, worked at AM&T in the deburring, machining and assembly departments while in school. She gained valuable hands-on mechanical experience throughout those years
In 1989, Tammy earned a degree in Business Management at Assumption College. After graduation she left the shop to fill a leadership role in Human Resources at Harvard University. In 1991, she returned to the shop in the quality department as an apprentice.
In 1996, after 5 years as a mechanical quality control inspector, Tammy became Quality Assurance Manager. She was dedicated to continue her father’s tradition of excellence in quality.
In 2000 Tammy took a more active management role which ultimately led to Stanley’s retirement. Tammy expanded the business into new markets focusing on a commitment to improvement, teamwork, partnership and growth.
In 2002 Tammy became President of AM&T. Under her direction, the company has become an industry leader offering progressive solutions. Her commitment to continuous improvement, lean manufacturing principles, and what many customers call her “out of the box thinking” is key to AM&T’s success.
Under Tammy’s management, the company has increased sales in the defense, medical, and commercial industries while remaining a debt free company. The company continues to grow and increase capabilities annually while achieving quality and customer service excellence. She is committed to continue that excellence.
