A Brief History of Samax Precision
Samax Precision, Inc. (formerly Samax Tool and Die), was founded by Sam Costanzo, a World War II veteran who learned his love of machining serving on the USS New Mexico as a Machinist Mate. Following his honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy, Sam started as an apprentice at American Can Company, where he worked for the next 20 years. When he decided to start his own business in 1963, he rented a small space in his brother-in-law’s shop in Sunnyvale, California. His first customer was his former employer, American Can.
After three years, Sam bought property on Evelyn Avenue in Sunnyvale and built a facility for his manufacturing operation. At first, he leased out much of the building to other businesses, but by the early 1980s Samax Tool and Die had expanded to take up the whole facility.
In the early years, Sam’s customer base was primarily the canning industry, for which he manufactured seaming rolls using manual lathes, mills, and grinders. But eventually he branched out, purchasing NC machines, then CNC machines, to serve the medical, aerospace, defense, and other industries becoming Samax Precision Inc.
Since Sam passed away in 1996, his family has carried on his legacy, marking the 50th anniversary of Samax Precision, Inc., in 2013.
