Nov 29 2021
If we can measure it….we can make it!
Monday, 29 July, 2021: G.S. Precision (GSP) headquartered in Brattleboro, VT, has donated all the design time, materials and labor to cut out a logo ski jumper to be on display downtown and at the event February 19-20, 2022.
GSP partnered with The Harris Hill Ski Jumping committee to collaborate on the design and creation of a fabricated metal ski Jumper.
The logo was cut out on one machine called the Omax Water Jet machine out of .375 thick Aluminum sheet stock. The logo design was programmed into the OMAX by Tessa Lamarre and Fletcher Lynde which took about 12 hours. The entire cut took the Omax about 6 hours from start to finish to complete.
This type of community involvement and engagement is what GSP is all about. The Harris Hill Ski Jumping history predates GSP’s in Brattleboro starting back in 1922 – celebrating their 100th anniversary this year. The area ski jump hits home for GSP employeessince a member of the welding team at GSP, Brian Squires, used to compete at Harris Hill launching himself off the historic Brattleboro icon.
GSP started in 1958 by George S. Schneeberger with an eye and desire for perfect machined aerospace and defense parts similar to Fred Harris’ leap of faith in 1922 by tackling turbulent times and colossal challenges to create perfect aerial human flight on skis.
