WHO WE ARE

Blaise Buholzer

Founder, General Director

I am the initial Founder of WSM Technology and the majority partner.
After Following a 4 Year Apprenticeship Program of “Precision Mechanics” (1975-79) in Switzerland, I successfully followed a 3 Years Evening Mechanical Engineering Program (20Hr/week).
While finishing my Evening Studies in Switzerland, I was working full time at “ Ateliers des Charmilles “, known as Charmilles at the time, now part of the +GF+ Corporation.
In May of 1985, our Family of 4 emigrated to the USA to work for Charmilles USA in Chicago. My first job, besides learning English, was as an Application Engineer on wire and die-sinker EDM Machines.
Over the years with Charmilles, I held many positions in R&D, Application Engineer, Trainer, Technical Sales Support, Area District Manager and Independent Distributor. I always enjoyed bringing success to shops through the best practice on how to optimize machine utilization and increasing performance.
What I love most is our family with 5 children and their growing Tribe of Children. I thank God everyday for all that we have and that I received in my life and this amazing country of possibilities. I never pray for us, what more shall I ask….., but I always pray for others less fortunate deserving better health or a break in their complicated and frustrating life. My favorite sport is Soccer. Good wine with fresh locally sourced food has always been a great pleasure for me. You cannot have good food without some love put into it. I also love my birth Country of Switzerland and would characterize myself has a very curious, loyal, persistent and passionate individual.
I am looking forward to meeting you and your team.

Phillip Warlop Jr.

Western PA & West Virginia Sales

I have been with WSM Technology since 2014. I was hired to cover Western PA and West Virginia as WSM expanded its territory beyond Ohio. I had known Blaise for over 15 years at the time as he sold a lot of CNC machinery to the manufacturing companies I worked at. He was instrumental to our growth and success by providing us with innovative technologies and processes through the years. His willingness to help our company with anything at any time was instrumental in me wanting to work with him and do the same for potential customers.

I was raised in Stow, OH outside of Akron along with 2 older sisters and a younger brother. My parents had 25 acres so there was always something for us kids to get into on that much land. I studied Engineering & Computer Science at both Ohio State University and Mount Union College. After college I started working at Portage Mold & Die in Ravenna, OH starting out running a drill press. I worked my way up and went on to run Vertical Machining Centers, Horizontal Machining Centers and Sinker EDM Machines. I made the jump to CNC Programming and spent the next 5 years programming all components of the plastic injection and rubber compression molds that we built. I was promoted to Head CNC Programmer at Monitor Mold & Machine in Akron, OH where I worked for another 5 years before being promoted to Plant Manager. I was involved with everything from quoting jobs to acquiring new customers to mold design.

Outside of work I spend most of my time with my beautiful wife Alexis and my 2 little boys, Phillip III and Calvin who are quite a handful but awesome at the same time. I also enjoying playing basketball, soccer and golf in my free time. I look forward to getting to know you and hopefully helping your company with their manufacturing needs.

Dale Mc Cartney

Northern Ohio region Sales

I’m the newest employee of WSM Technology. I was hired by Blaise as a sales engineer for sales within the Northern Ohio region. I have known Blaise for over 30 years as our paths have crossed with machining projects, social acquaintances and machine tool events.

My training includes technical machining courses; an Associate and Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology from Penn State and Cleveland State respectfully and an MBA from Lake Erie College.

I was raised on a dairy farm in Western Pennsylvania, South of Meadville. I still have family in the area and yes, I’m still a Steeler’s fan. Early in my career while in PA, I operated construction equipment, forged automotive components and machined tooling using mills, lathes and some of the first sinker EDM machines.

After moving to the Cleveland area in the mid-seventies, I married my wife Vicky where we raised our two boys; coached their baseball teams; lead Church youth teaching and scouting. Professionally, I began as a Quality Engineer for TRW; then a Sales & CNC Milling Applications Engineer for Boston Digital Corporation and a advanced manufacturing engineer for Eaton Corporation. For the past twenty years, I managed the International and domestic sales of large mechanical and hydraulic press projects ranging from $2 to $12 million. Most recently I managed the sales and personnel of a 25-person graphite manufacturing company.

Today, Vicky and I enjoy traveling; golfing; skiing and are engaged in our Church’s outreach programs. We most of all enjoying our first grandson. I love meeting new people and learning new technology, although some aspects of iPhones and computers are often a test of my patience!
