Bob's passion for product development has been the motivation and vision for Veloce Engineering. His 20+ year career has taken him from fabricating product as a machinist/CNC programmer to conceptualizing and creating unique solutions for mechanical designs. Bob's medical device experience with US Surgical/Covidien R&D provided him the opportunity to design and develop stapling, ligating, hernia repair and access instruments. His perspective as an engineer and exposure to rapid prototyping has provided the insight to understand what clients expect from a service provider. Bob holds a BS in mechanical engineering from Fairfield University. His second passion is cooking pizza in his wood-fired brick oven, which he designed and built, and spending time with his wife, son and daughter.
