KSPT Associates

Meet The Team!

KSPT associates are a colorful bunch! Get to know some of the people behind the names.

Marina Fridman

Name: Marina Fridman
Title: Territory Manager, International

Meet Marina:

Marina speaks several foreign languages and enjoys swimming in the warm sea!

In Marina's Words:

I'm very happy to be a member of a special, dynamic multinational international customer service team. We take pride in listening to our customers and being able to communicate with them in their native language when servicing their accounts.


I like to travel, bike, hike and swim in the warm sea. When I travel, it is always interesting to meet new people and learn new customs. When I'm not traveling or swimming I enjoy good books, movies and listening to all kinds of music, classical, jazz and ethnic music from different parts of the world.

Gary Miller

Name: Gary Miller
Title: Director of Training and Occupational Development

Meet Gary:

Gary creates dynamic training programs for KSPT, rides a Harley Davidson Road Glide Ultra and does volunteer work for his church!

In Gary's Words:

As the Director of Training and Occupational Development for KYOCERA SGS Precision Tools, I am proud of the training and education programs we offer our associates. Our programs are comparable to those offered by much larger companies. We also offer a career counseling program that will help associates prepare for their future career goals within SGS.


Riding my Harley Road Glide Ultra is great therapy. Wind in my face, wife on the back, you just can't beat it. I also enjoy working with a Christian motorcycle organization from my church. When you help others it is a wonderful feeling. I don't know who gets more out of it, the people we help or myself. I also enjoy spending time with my family and reading.



Ernest Garza

Name: Ernest Garza
Title: Sales Director, Latin America

Meet Ernest:

Ernest is an 11-year member of the Sales Engineering Team who enjoys cheering on the San Antonio Spurs!

In Ernest's Words:

Working with the KSPT Sales Engineering Team the past eleven years has been both fulfilling and rewarding to me. Having had the opportunity to introduce proven and truly revolutionary tooling like the Z-Carb End Mill has given me a sense of pride making a difference in the manufacturing industry.


My hobbies include white water rafting, kayaking and canoeing. I am a Live NBA Basketball Active supporter of the San Antonio Spurs. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, listening to music and practicing on my blues harmonica.

Doug Bonfiglio

Name: Doug Bonfiglio
Title: R&D Engineer

Meet Doug:

Doug is a creative R&D engineer who is also a born and bred Chevy man!

In Doug's Words:

In addition to product development, the Research and Development team also evaluates competitor products, which is not an easy task when you're a worldwide company. We also evaluate new substrate materials, physical vapor deposition coatings, a variety of treatment processes, edge honing methods, surface finish polishing and more. It goes without saying; the work here is always interesting for those with an inquisitive mind.


My interests outside of work center around anything with rubber tires, particularly cars and motorcycles. I was born a Chevy man and believe drag racing is the only form of motorsport. Being blessed a drag racer and Chevy man means I'm adept at and thoroughly enjoy all forms of car crafting, from fabrication to painting.

I also enjoy motorcycling. I've been riding for 14 years now, and knock wood, the shiny side is still up. Most of my riding serves as transportation to and from work, although there is the occasional getaway with friends, which I particularly enjoy. Lately I've been thinking of drag racing a bike as a cheaper means of going faster. That's what I'm thinking. My wife isn't thinking that, but I am.

I'm a homebody and usually happiest when puttering around the old ranch. The wife and daughter are active in 4H which means I'm active fixing fences, tractors, barns, and whatever other odd job comes along. Fixing anything is a challenge I find enjoyable.

As a final interest, I'd say weightlifting. It's an on and off habit that I always come back to and a nice challenge for mind and body that might be particularly useful as this youngest daughter of mine nears the dating age.

Kathy Frye

Name: Kathy Frye
Title: Distribution Center B

Meet Kathy:

Kathy is an enthusiastic member of our Distribution Center team and also an enthusiastic soccer mom!

In Kathy's Words:

KYOCERA SGS Precision Tools is a great place to work. It is a company in the middle of a small community that is making a huge impact in the cutting tool world. From offering a clean, comfortable working environment, to offering company-paid health insurance, KSPT is a company that cares about its associates. There is so much more, but I suggest you find out for yourself and come work for a GREAT TEAM that actually cares.


I am a "major" soccer mom right now and just recently became a "volleyball" mom. My weekends are filled with the kids' sporting activities as well as walking my two dogs Magnie, an airedale, and Moxie, a miniature schnauzer.

Cleve Trump

Name: Cleve Trump
Title: Set Up A, End Mill Division

Meet Cleve:

Cleve knows a variety of CNC machines inside and out, enjoys motorcycling and being "PapPap" to his grandson!

In Cleve's Words:

As an associate at KYOCERA SGS Precision Tools for the past 16 years, I've had many opportunities, including learning to set up and run a variety of machines. With the company's support and encouragement, I earned my Journeyman certificate. I am actively involved in the company safety program serving as a building safety representative and have traveled to several conferences and trade shows.


On weekends, you can find me bowling in two leagues or golfing (whenever Cleveland weather permits). I just welcomed a new "baby" this April: an '82 Suzuki 750 motorcycle, my first. The real baby in the family, though, is my grandson, Xavier. He calls me PapPap, and when he hears me pull in the drive for a visit, his eyes light up like a Christmas tree!

Jeff Zaucha

Name: Jeff Zaucha
Title: Treasurer

Meet Jeff:

Jeff makes all our customers feel like part of the family and spends fall Saturdays with the Ohio State Buckeyes!

In Jeff's Words:

One of the most attractive features about working at SGS Tool Company is the sense of belonging. KSPT affords many avenues for its associates to get involved...not only with their individual departments, but in the overall business itself. Through various team-building experiences as well as company-wide programs, each associate has an opportunity to make a difference. It is a family-owned business and every associate is treated like a part of the family.


When I am away from work, my favorite activity is playing with my daughters, Makenna and Rylee. I also enjoy running, playing golf and volleyball. Of course, when it comes to Saturday afternoons in the fall, they are consumed with Ohio State Football. Go Bucks!!
