Reed, who grew up in Mentor, Ohio, graduated from Mentor High School and went to work as a tool and die maker in the aerospace industry in northern Ohio. Prior to joining RCBI, he was employed as a machinist in Elkins.
“It’s a pleasure to welcome to RCBI a talented toolmaker with more than 25 years of experience in the aerospace industry,” said Weber.
