Since 1993, CAD/CAM Consulting Services Inc. (CCCS) has consistently been a Top 10 Worldwide Reseller of the world’s number one CAM software, Mastercam.

CAD/CAM is trusted by Haas Automation (Oxnard, CA), Toyoda, DMG Mori, Mazak, and other notable machining companies to train and support their applications staff both remotely and on-site. CCCS also has long-standing partnerships with tooling manufacturers such as Sandvik and Iscar, who work with CCCS to deliver a full suite of machining solutions to customers.

Following the unexpected passing of CCCS President and Founder Tom Shelar last year, the company took the necessary step to reorganize in order to move forward. In Tom’s honor, CCCS continue to uphold a strict level of excellence. All customers, from job shops to major aerospace companies, depend on CCCS’s expertise to resolve issues and help perfect their machining technique.

Tom’s son Patrick has taken over as President of CCCS. Patrick recently earned his Ph.D. in Cell, Molecular, and Developmental Biology from UC Riverside. With Patrick as President, and unwavering support from CNC Software, Inc., the developers of Mastercam, CCCS has not missed a beat.

Meghan West, President and CEO of CNC Software, Inc., shared:

“Success in manufacturing comes not just from technology and processes; it comes from partnerships and relationships. The complexity involved in manufacturing high-end parts requires a commitment from all parties. That commitment often results in a long standing relationship.

CNC Software is grateful to have CAD/CAM CONSULTING SERVICES as one of our longest and most trusted partners. Our ability to provide customers with the highest quality experience from start to finish is due in large part to our channel of Resellers, like CCCS, consistently delivering outstanding service and support.

Our relationship extends past business; Tom was one of the most loved members of our Mastercam family. We are proud and inspired to see his son step up as President. The transition to the second generation is bittersweet. We miss our dear friend. But we are hopeful and excited to see fresh ideas and continued success under the direction of Patrick Shelar.”

Since August, CCCS has not only maintained the level of support our customers are accustomed to receiving, but has expanded their territory to include San Diego and Imperial Counties. This expansion means machine shops in these areas now have access to CCCS’s world-class team for Mastercam and other products such as NCSimul and Moldplus.

CCCS has also partnered with an online CAM software training company, camInstructor. The ability to provide the CCCS brand of live Mastercam training in an online format with camInstructor will improve educational access for eager customers in all corners of the CCCS territory.

These new developments are part of CCCS’s plan to bring first-class service and support to more companies in the manufacturing industry. For CCCS, the greatest success is helping customers expand theirs.
