Sad to say Joe Martin has passed
Joseph H. Martin
December 3, 1934-February 12, 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the Sherline’s owner Joe Martin passed away February 12th, 2014 from heart-related problems. He was 79 years old. His trust specifies that his current management staff and experienced employees will continue to operate the Sherline factory and support its customers. Between them, Foreman Karl Rohlin, General Manager Charla Papp and Marketing Director Craig Libuse have a combined 112 years of experience working with Joe at Sherline Products. Joe’s far-sighted management of the company leaves it in very sound financial condition and with a clear direction for future product support and development. You can count on us to continue his tradition of making a high quality product here in the USA and offering the best possible customer support. Joe’s non-profit foundation supporting metalworking craftsmanship will also continue to be funded by profits from Sherline tool sales as he intended.
