Long Beach High School – Working Students

Working students continue to visit Northfield as part of our continued commitment to supporting the community. This June we attended a luncheon to celebrate the hard work and development of the students that have come to work at the Northfield offices over the past year.

Long Beach Lunch
David – Long Beach Student

I really enjoy the variety of tasks I’m given to work on and even having the opportunity of meeting Paul the CEO. I’m very grateful for the experience during the school year and I look forward to working at Northfield every Monday.”

David – Long Beach Student

The luncheon was to thank the sponsors who have invited students to visit their business’ each week during the school year. All the students and aides were in attendance to celebrate their achievements.

David did a great job taking charge of a variety of tasks. Including updating the saw log. We log when material is cut and then track it in the shop if we need to find it. A job very important to the whole team.

Additionally, David had the opportunity to assist our accounting manager Linda. Providing a great overview of the business and introduction to the working world.”

Northfield Community - Positive Behaviour - Oceanside High School

Oceanside Highschool NY

The Holidays are a time for reflection and this last year has been tougher than most, especially as we have needed to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic since day one. That said, it has not stopped the Northfield team taking the time to give something back to the community. 

This year, we have been welcoming special education students to the office and workshop, with Rebecca Ryan from Positive Behavior and Oceanside High School. Together we have been providing the opportunity for the students to step out of their comfort zone and learn new life skills.

Oceanside High School Northfield Tour
On the Northfield Shop Tour

I work providing professional development opportunities and positive behaviour support for individuals in community settings. At Northfield the students learn about manufacturing and gain experience in a professional workplace.

Professional work experience is key for improving the student’s self-esteem and building confidence. They gain essential skills for work and life such as: resilience, problem-solving, team-working and communication.”

Rebecca Ryan – Positive Behavior

After such a positive experience with one student, we now welcome 4 students to our workshop and office on a regular basis. The tasks range from supporting the office team with organization to spending time on the shop floor with the engineers, learning how we create our high precision work holding parts. Everyone here is welcoming and immensely proud to be involved.

Meeting the team.

On personal note, it’s so rewarding to support this worthwhile cause and to play an active role working with members of the local community.”

Paul de Feo – Northfield CEO

In December, OHS had the opportunity to visit Northfield Precision Corporation in Island Park, NY. Oceanside High School and support agencies, such as PBS, partner with local business. We work to provide meaningful internship opportunities for our students.

At the moment, Northfield Precision Corp. has opened their doors to students in our ACE program. Students attend different locations throughout the week for exposure to different jobs to develop career readiness skills.

As a representative from OHS it was my honor to tour the facility with Rebecca Ryan, our Work Based Coordinator and Paul de Feo, CEO/President of the corporation.

It was a highlight to see our students and support staff working together with Northfield employees in a variety of tasks.

Getting involved!

It was a privilege to be taken on a comprehensive tour that, Mr. De Feo so generously gave. Explaining all the amazing products produced here, the state of the art machines and computers.

It was inspiring to meet the employees; most of which have been with the company for many years.

Looking ahead we are excited to develop an internship program with our STEM students.

Thank you, Rebecca, for coordinating this amazing program and providing such a wonderful opportunity and experience for our students.

Thank you wholeheartedly to the Northfield Precision Corp. for all you do for our community!”

Northfield Precision - How can we help?

5 Minutes with Charles Florio Northfield Sales & Darryl Celli Senior Applications Engineer

How can we help?

Charles Florio, part of the US based Northfield sales team, and Darryl Celli, one of Northfields Senior application engineers, share their insights about how Northfield can help solve your work holding needs.

 

Thank you for taking the time. You are the first port of call for Northfield customers, tell us about the most common questions?

Charles…

When starting new project it’s common to discuss similar experiences related to the customers business and to introduce the product range. At Northfield Precision we have two main product areas.

  1. Our standard high precision range of: Air, Diaphragm and Collet chucks. These are always available, in a range of sizes, for immediate order. Just give us a call. (516) 431 1112
  2. Custom applications and unique products are our second speciality Check out our custom projects for some ideas.

Northfield has over 50 years of hands-on experience working across multiple industries on a global scale. At Northfield Precision we excel at automotive, aerospace, and medical applications.

 

Darryl…

We can adapt any of our chucks to custom and very specific situations, for example, high precision finishing work with pneumatic clamping pressure. All we need is your machine specification or a technical drawing. Drop us a line sales@northfield.com or call (516) 431 1112

 

Why should Northfield Precision be your preferred work holding provider?

Darryl…

Repeatability is one common question. Our standard Air Chucks offer .0001 T.I.R. repeatability, best in class. Combined with our world leading precision and accuracy, this is where Northfield really sets itself apart from the competition.

 

Charles…

Firstly, it is always our goal to completely understand the customer and their requirements before getting to work. This ensures we deliver the best possible product.

I always begin the conversation by discussing the exact application.

  • “What is the part material (metal, ceramic or glass).”
  • “Will the chuck be used in a turning or grinding environment?”
  • “What type of machine will the chuck be used on?”

Finally, our custom specialities are best at high precision finishing work, and we excel at providing solutions that require light clamping pressure. Our chucks allow the pressure to be fine-tuned by the end user and is possible because of our extensive experience delivering pneumatic solutions.

 

We are always on hand to discuss your project and answer any questions.
