In 1975, when Tony was 25 years old, he decided to open a machine shop. Staub Machine Company was born, and Tony has not slowed down since. Although Tony has had great personal success in business, he is most proud of his three daughters – Jennifer, Allison, and Julie.
Tony is passionate about the revitalization of the Village of Hamburg. He owns Lake Street Plaza, and in 2007 purchased a building on the corner of Main and Buffalo Streets. After considerable renovations, it is now called Staub Square, and it’s a pillar of the Village culture.
Tony’s philosophies about customer-vendor relationships, hiring, and innovation are progressive, but his work ethic and moral compass are firmly grounded in traditional values. Tony’s dichotomy of innovation and old-fashioned principles has already made him a leader in the manufacturing world, and he’s not planning on stopping anytime soon.
Jim joined Tony shortly after Staub Machine was founded, and he and Tony worked as partners for the early years of Staub Machine. Like Tony, Jim had big dreams and motivation to make them reality. Jim used his manufacturing expertise to spend some time developing processes and products in the medical industry.
In 1995 Jim decided to rejoin Staub Machine, just in time to help move to the Lake Street location. He managed operations at Staub for the next 15 years, and when the new production facility on Grimsby Drive was purchased, Jim was the obvious choice to lead preparations. Since its completion, Jim has continued to oversee operations at Grimsby, where he shares his experience and his detail-oriented outlook with employees.
