Jeff Goltz
Our three locations in California, Massachusetts and North Carolina give us the geographical reach to service our customers well and without them incurring heavy travel expenses.

Jeff Goltz, Southeastern Sales & Service Engineer
“Customers look at Colonial Saw as a solution provider because of our extensive market knowledge and close understanding of their operations. They trust us to provide the right machine for their problem, and not sell a machine for the sake of a sale. Providing the right solution today earns customer loyalty tomorrow.”

Jeff started his career as a CNC Machinist in Ohio. He then developed his field service and electronic skills as a field service technician for Quintax CNC Routers. His extensive knowledge in the grinding industry began with Vollmer where he was a Service Engineer for 6 years. Today, Colonial Saw customers rely on Jeff's vast technical and application skills. They can always count on Jeff to address their needs quickly and efficiently. "Jeff's approach to work and his commitment to the customers fits right in with our culture," says Dave Rakauskas, Vice President of Colonial Saw Company.
