Electrocut-Pacific started in 1969 as Jerry Carroll Machining with 1 Bridgeport milling machine. Within a year the shop had grown to include a lathe, surface grinder, more milling machines and two Tool & Die Makers. By 1972 several more Tool & Die Makers had been hired. A Charmilles D20 sinker EDM was added to support the production of carbide die inserts nd other complex tool and die components.
In 1974 Jerry became intrigued with the possibilities of the new NC controlled wire EDM. He purchased an AGIE DEM 15, becoming the first shop west of Chicago to have wire EDM capability.
