Don’t let this competitive, all-star sports jock, machinery dealing, outdoorsman hunting, fishing, camper, Young Gun fool you. Underneath the towering 6”2 build is an easygoing softer guy. A family man who reminisces with wife Julie saying

“Our favorite memories are camping trips with the kids when they were younger and telling them the old spooky urban legends of Hookman before bedtime near the campfire.”

Kevin and Julie have a lot of mouths to feed with four children, Kenny 26, Rachel 23, Brandon 19, Alexandria (AKA Pip) 16, plus a daughter in law Alyssa 26, granddaughter Amelia 9 months, their chocolate lab Mongo and in Kevin’s words “One stupid cat named Lady.”

He was known for Wire EDM specialties in 4TH axis and was published with Mitsubishi for discovering new process to wire components. His background includes Wire EDM, Die Sink EDM, Engineering, and Project Management in the tool and die, Plastic extrusion tool and Plastic Mold making.

After relocating to Connecticut nearly 14 years ago to work and apply his skills in Medical Device Manufacturing Kevin decided he would break off on his own again. Kevin founded On Target Machine Brokers, LLC three and a half years ago and he says

“I had worked in manufacturing equipment sales for several years, but did not respect the dishonest methods I was exposed to. I knew that I had something to offer to this industry and decided to go on my own and build a company I could be proud of.”
