Chris Passero Celebrates 25 Years at Calvary Robotics

As companies grow and change, employees do, as well. Some might stay for a short time before moving on to better things, while some stay a lifetime. It’s always essential to get the perspective of long-time employees, as they’ve seen things change for the better.

On this episode of Advanced Automation, A Podcast By Calvary Robotics, host Josh Gravelle talked with Chris Passero, Lead Machine Builder and the third employee ever hired by Calvary. The duo talked about Passero’s career at the company and the many things he’s seen over the years. Passero has worked in the industry for over 38 years, 25 of which have been at Calvary.

Passero started his career in an apprenticeship for a small company, learning the ins and outs of machine building and tool making. “I learned how to weld, paint – we took a blueprint reading course, all the math courses you have to take, and, of course, assembling machines was a big part of it,” Passero said.

Over the 38 years, Passero has worked on numerous automation systems, and it’s hard to calculate how many he’s built. He guessed hundreds. “Some years, you might work on only one or two machines. If they’re large, sometimes you’ll work on those small cells, and you’ll pump a bunch of those out,” Passero said.

Passero dug into the early days of Calvary, when he did everything from cleaning bathrooms to doing payroll.

“Calvary’s been a good place to work,” Passero said.
