Ex-con TV host keynotes CMCC precision machine conference

By Kathryn Skelton, Staff Writer

AUBURN — After a rough start and years in federal prison, Titan Gilroy took an entry-level job at a machine shop and learned the trade — then built his own company.

With a few smart moves, it took off like a shot.

"I went from $1 million (the first year) to $1 million a month for the next 24 months — 55 employees, 20 Haas (high-tech) machines," Gilroy said.

Then came a call in 2009 from the customer who'd driven so much of that growth.

"He said, 'Today's going to be a bad day.' In an entire day, $4 million (worth of orders) on my floor, canceled," he said.

Gilroy is building his California company back up again and he's gone back to prison — but this time, he'll be teaching others on his own TV show.

The star of "Titan: American Built" opened a four-day conference for 200-plus machine shop teachers on Tuesday at Central Maine Community College.

The annual Americas CNC Educators HTEC Conference rotates host sites around North America every year. CNC stands for computer numeric control; HTEC for the Haas Technical Education Center.

More than 1,800 schools in North and South America, from high schools to colleges, use the company's equipment in the classroom, according to Bob Skodzinsky, manager of the HTEC Network at Haas Automation.

The conference connects teachers with each other and the latest trends in digital manufacturing. CMCC was picked to host, in part, because of the strength and size of its precision machine program.

"Most of our students have jobs at the end of their first semester on campus," said Diane Dostie, the conference organizer and CMCC's dean of corporate and community services. "We do a lot of training for our regional manufacturers who need to upgrade the skill sets of their workforce and we're seeing an increased demand for that internal training."

Gilroy, dressed in a black T-shirt with "Fight for America" across the back, detailed his own challenges and enduring optimism. In 2009, when the recession hit and he got that call, he'd had to lay off 40 employees.

"I got on my knees so many times, (asking,) 'Please save my company,'" Gilroy said. "I just got down to the absolute bottom."

Even in the crashing economy, he noticed the aerospace industry going strong. So Gilroy sent a letter every week for six months to the head of an aerospace company, asking to talk.

It worked. He got in, and it helped save the company.

"I'm making parts right now for a spacecraft that's going to Mars," Gilroy said. "I'm making parts for another company that's shooting tourists up into space. They're like, 'Do you want to go?' I'm like, 'No.'"

For the third season of his reality TV show, which airs in November on MAVTV, Gilroy said he's gone into San Quentin State Prison and set up a precision machine shop for inmates.

"In this show, I'm going to teach hardened guys who have no hope how to make amazing parts and use that as an example for teachers all over the world to follow," Gilroy said.

His end goal: "We're going to get them jobs on the outside," he said. "We're going to follow them and show that it's real, show that it can happen."

Manufacturing is hard, he said, but "we're making precision parts for every industry on the planet and it's a good-paying job, year-round," Gilroy said. "It's an exciting time because the technology has never been this good. Machines have never been this good."

His shop in Rockland, Calif., is back up to 30 people.

"There's just something cool about working with metal," he said.

Someone in the audience at Kirk Hall voiced their agreement.

Fred Donovan, who's taught precision machine tooling at CMCC for 32 years, called Gilroy's keynote "very inspiring."

"The fact that he came out of the prison system and then went back to give these people hope is awesome," he said.

Titan Gilroy, second from left, talks with precision machine teachers Tuesday after his keynote at Central Maine Community College in Auburn. Gilroy, star of the reality TV show "Titan: American Built," got a job in a machine tool shop after spending time in federal prison and built his California company from scratch. In season three of his show, he's gone back to prison to set up a high-tech machine shop and teach inmates at San Quentin State Prison in California.

Thomas Oeter LamaI'm going to drive up from Rhode Island to hear his presentation I spent 10 years behind the wall next to no trades in there I came out and got very deep in to Harley's I now have my Owen shop I am not a machinist but I follow Titan he's very inspirational he speaks the truth this is exactly what America needs and truth be told if he was running for president Titan you got my vote5   ·  1 week ago

George SpringerIs this Titan that owns a machine shop in Northern CA? Keep up the good work. My cousin's son is studying mechanical engineering here in the SouthEast and I am going to give him some exposure to the machining world. Many young people are just not aware of the tremendous opportunities in machining and manufacturing, and one can make a very give living at this trade. Contrary to popular opinion, and yes we have given much away, we all know about NAFTA, but the US is still the largest manufacturer in the world. We produce 20% of the goods and services in the world. This is one of the things that made this country great. Blacksmith shops, the first machine shops!1   ·  7 days ago

Bill BurrisI have been in the industry for 22+ years and your story rejuvenates my passion for machining. I recently started my own shop and have a love for CNC machining. Can anyone come to your conference? @TITAN - American Built2   ·  1 week ago

Mateo VanegasI went to platt tech for highschool. I started with Manuel machines when I was 14, Stayed on manuals until I was a sophomore then my junior and senior year it was all CNC machining and learning how program machines. I even won 3rd place in skills USA for CNC turning/programming. Machining changed my life. The trade taught me you could make anything and everything with a piece of metal stock or plastic stock and a machine tool. The trade has to come back. There's tons of young people getting out of technical high schools and college looking for jobs in the trade but the trade just isn't there anymore. We need it back ! Machine tool is making a boom once again.5   ·  1 week ago

Ben DockstaderI just got into CNC machining a few months ago, its a little different than what you do, we build stone counter tops. However, we still use American made machines for the American worker making parts for the American homeowner.

TITAN - American BuiltIt's 5:40 AM Pacific and I am driving into San Quentin Prison to work on the CNC Machining Facility I am building...I will pop back on here later today around 3pm and answer any questions that have come up... I deal with a lot of you machinist and students... A lot of companies who have not stepped up to 3D Modeling and Programming... A lot of companies who are falling behind the times... I saw this and just wanted to get behind it... $25 bucks is insane and it's free to students who don't make money with it. Lots of YouTube training videos and I will be putting up a huge amount of training videos in the next year to teach my style of machining... From the basics to advanced Aerospace stuff... Have a great day:-) Titan50   ·  2 weeks ago

Aaron PowterI totally agree with everything you stated here Titan Ty Gilroy. I personally have AutoDesk to thank for supplying high end CAD-CAM such as Fusion360 to me, my students and our college "for free". Imagine my surprise over here in Australia when we purchased 2 brand new HAAS machines only to be quoted $24K AUD by another software company for their CAD-CAM to run our machines. I met the AutoDesk team and they said "no problem" our software is free to education. Thank you Carl Bass, Thank you AutoDesk Au and thanks to our resellers CADPRO in NZ5   ·  2 weeks ago

Prison to CNC Programmer
Prison to CNC Programmer

I was humbled by all the comments I got from last weeks video "The American Worker Has Been Sold Out"... I got a ton of letters from Machine Shop owners who identified with my Pain... I also had the younger generation asking me how I got into manufacturing? Figured, I would get Raw and Real again and tell that story... Then the plan is to do a few more where I talk about building my company and finally... What we need to do as American Manufacturers in the this day and age to not only stay in business but to Thrive...

This is not about me it is about all of US and our right to make products in America by doing it Faster, Better and Cheaper than the competition.

Clark MacGirrMr.Titan I'm a 30 year machinist,I really needed to here this.It has been rough here in Michigan, but I have been working all the way through the tough times.I feel the best thing we can do is to reach out to young kids,7th and 8th graders and show them how cool this is and how to make a living doing this!I machine the parts for building Cherry tree shakers,very cool.8   ·  3 weeks ago

Bill GtrdoneInspiring video sir . Been in the trade 25 years started my own business 1 year ago . Manual machines to this point . Making and designing 1 off pieces . Doing this on the side . I have a great full time job making excellent money , pension benefits for my family . The next step in my career is going on my own full time . That is a very difficult decision because my family relies on my job . This video makes me believe in myself to keep going . Great story .1   ·  3 weeks ago

Chris JordanUnfortunately on the job training doesn't come like it used too... Companies are about the bottom dollar and can't afford to spend money to train. Fortunately for me my father got me into the trade out of high school in 2003. Now the opportunities are endless.

Different types of production and mold making. I love watching your series and would love to get the chance to work on larger machines and maybe someday with you! You inspire me to take my production to new levels and to really think about the methods involved. Keep it up sir!1   ·  3 weeks ago

Randy FettermanI fell in love with CNC machining when I was 6 years old. My dad was a shop foreman at a company here in Texas. I remember going with my mom to give him lunch and he wanted to show me what he had made me. Being the excited 6 year old, I jumped out the car and ran into the shop. He showed me his machine and how it works, in the process cut me a dog tag with my name and birthday scribed into it. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. While in high school, I got to shadow a person in the career field I wanted to go into. Everyone else picking was picking doctors, lawyers, nurses etc. i chose to be with my dad. The day I turned 18, my dad called me up and asked if I wanted a "real" job; being I was working at a Wendy's at the time. I started machining on Saturdays and Sunday's while I was still in high school getting my skill set in place. Now, I run my department and write all programs needed. I don't make a lot of money (not anywhere near what other programmers make) but that doesn't matter when I I'm doing what I love!3   ·  3 weeks ago

Jackson SullinsI see this every time we get a first article in from China. We can blow them out of the Water in Quality and time but our company can get a finished part for less than the cost of the bar stock. I dont know what we are going to do when they get their metallurgy and quality down. America needs to get together and quit worrying about past and political issues. We all need to worry about putting food on the table and showing the rest of the world we can provide a superior product no matter what the cost.2   ·  3 weeks ago

America's Youth - TITANS of the FUTURE

Sometimes Seeing is Believing and that's why I flew into Wisconsin... Drove over to Eleva Strum high school and put the CNC Machining students on a bus for a Road Trip. 3 hours later at Mercury Marine, I opened their eyes to the Huge World of American Manufacturing... Awesome CNC Pallet Cells, Robots, Massive Casting Furnaces and Much More --- YES... That's what we do, We Make Something From Nothing... BOOM!

Brandon MaguireDo you notice a big decline in kids wanting to become machinist? We are here in Maine. I am just 22 I am making sweet money and it amazes me at the amount of kids that don't want to do this. I mean I am programing right at my control I got full access to my programs. I build programs from a blank slate just using my head.( Not overly complex part s) and the company right now is thriving. We are scared that if we don't get enough we can't handle more work. Do you see the decrease in kids that want to be in manufacturing?1   ·  3 weeks ago

Jason SteinerI've noticed that most of the people I meet in a shop come from families with a manufacturing background. If you didn't grow up with a dad in the shop, you don't know it's even an option. I still have good memories of visiting the Steiner Turf plant. And it sticks. After years in software, I'm back to the family business of sheet metal. Doing aerospace parts, but the small tractor business is using technology just as advanced. Anyway, outside of family, nobody else is promoting manufacturing careers. Until now. Thanks! Making stuff rocks. Kids need to know.1   ·  3 weeks ago
