Explanation: Beth, the CEO of the Everite company is Daniel Stern and he pioneered new technology of machining parts. My guess is that your text is referring to this company. But this is just an assumption.
*Everite has a reputation for being a leader in machining technology, particularly in electrochemical machining. Rotorex considered six different companies in the US and also visited companies in China, none of which could compete with Everite. Everite could hold the production tolerances better than the competition and also do the machining more cost effectively. According to Stern, although the Chinese have lower labor costs, our technology, particularly our better process control for turning, honing, and lapping, gave us a distinct edge. In addition we are doing all the automation, and building custom equipment to deburr and polish the parts. The tasks are complex and require sophisticated material handling and process-related engineering which Everite has in its proprietary arsenal.²
