Partner Spotlight: Xtreme Precision

Xtreme Precision’s Journey with Mastercam  

In 2013, in the bustling city of Los Angeles, California, two co-workers at a machine shop, Sergei Polishchuk and Dave Cannon, took a bold step. They decided to launch their own business, Xtreme Precision. What started with a single Star SB20 Swiss lathe and a single barfeeder, Xtreme Precision has since grown into a thriving enterprise, thanks to their partnership with Mastercam. This is their story.

The Beginnings of Xtreme Precision  

Xtreme Precision was born out of a shared vision and commitment to excellence. With a focus on serving the aerospace and defense industries, the company quickly outgrew its modest beginnings. Over the course of just three years, it added two more machines to its lineup and relocated to a larger, 4000 sqft facility in Chatsworth, California.

The company’s growth didn’t stop there. By 2019, Xtreme Precision had moved into a 10k sqft facility in Gallatin, Tennessee, boasting 13 Star machines. Today, the company operates 21 Star Swiss Lathes, 4 Eurotech Trofeo Mill Turns, a Mitsubishi sinker and wire EDM, 2 Okuma 5-axis mills, and a Zeiss CMM. Xtreme Precision recently achieved the prestigious ISO 13485 certification and employs 12 full-time staff.

The Founders’ Journey  

Sergei, an immigrant from Ukraine, arrived in the US in 2003 with his wife. Despite not speaking English and holding a bachelor’s degree in accounting, Sergei was determined to create a better life. He learned English through ESL classes and started taking machining classes, where he met Dave.

Dave, a Los Angeles native, had a lifelong passion for racing and modifying motorcycles. This love of mechanics led him to a career as a machinist. Before starting Xtreme Precision, he managed a screw machine shop. Together, Sergei and Dave combined their skills and experiences to create a company that would leave its mark on the manufacturing industry.

Mastercam: The Catalyst for Growth  

As Xtreme Precision grew, the need for sophisticated and efficient manufacturing solutions became undeniable. That’s when they turned to Mastercam. Mastercam’s advanced multi-axis, mill-turn, and Swiss solutions were instrumental in helping Xtreme Precision achieve a higher level of manufacturing.

When Sergei and Dave sought a software solution to propel Xtreme Precision’s manufacturing capabilities, it was clear that they needed guidance from experts in the field. That’s when they connected with QTE Manufacturing Solutions, a leading provider of advanced CAD/CAM solutions.

Success with Mastercam and QTE Manufacturing Solutions  

QTE was instrumental in advising Xtreme Precision on their software needs. They recommended Mastercam for its power, flexibility, and ease of use. The team at QTE didn’t just suggest the software; they worked closely with Xtreme Precision to ensure that the implementation met all their needs.

The partnership with QTE didn’t end after the implementation of Mastercam. QTE’s continuous support and regular training sessions ensured that Xtreme Precision could fully leverage Mastercam’s potential. Their post-installation support was paramount in Xtreme Precision’s ability to streamline their operations, improve productivity, and increase efficiency.

Mastercam and continued support from QTE provided the capabilities for Xtreme Precision to maximize the potential of their machinery. The advanced software allowed for efficient and precise part production, leading to faster turnaround times and higher quality products. This, in turn, contributed to an increase in client satisfaction and business growth.


Xtreme Precision’s journey is a testament to the power of determination, innovation, and the right partnership. Their success story with Mastercam underscores the potential that lies in leveraging cutting-edge technology to drive business growth.

As Xtreme Precision continues to grow and serve its clients with precision and excellence, they stand as a beacon of success in the manufacturing industry. This story serves as inspiration for all businesses that, with the right tools and partnerships, there’s no limit to what can be achieved.
