Vertex Manufacturing Solutions was founded in 2014 by Jeff Trotta. Early in his career, Jeff worked as a product engineer and engineering manager. In Jeff’s interactions with sales people, for both capital equipment and technical solutions, he noticed a dearth of sales professionals who could answer the questions that engineers need answered. Jeff was determined to help other engineers solve problems and find viable solutions, and thus Vertex was born.
