This week our client spotlight is Larry Daignault, Southwest Sales Manager at AXYZ International Inc., a leading global manufacturer of CNC router systems and CNC knife systems. A CNC, computer numerical control, router is a computer controlled cutting machine used for cutting various hard materials, such as wood, composites, aluminum steel, plastics, and foams (we learn so much working with our clients)! TenantBase helped him find a new office space that accommodates six fully operational machines.
We spoke with Larry about the CNC industry, the importance of high quality customer service, and his love of boogie boarding in Orange County.

Firstly, who knows what a CNC router is? If you’re not an expert in this niche industry or if you haven’t utilized the technology, it is easy to be deceived into using “knockoffs” that break easily and end up increasing costs.
“The challenge is helping people realize the value of spending a little more money on a product which is better quality,” said Larry. Many customers do not realize the difference between using a specialized and professional machine versus a lower quality alternative. “Spending money on machine that doesn’t do the job is a waste. It’s is better to do it right the first time.”
