However, the man sought stability. A friend of a Ukrainian Vasyl Shvets took it to a small plant, where he worked for 40 people. Shvets worked as a Turner-milling machine. He began to teach Stetsyuk.

For 5 years Vasyl Stetsyuk became a professional Turner. Subsequently began to develop computer-aided design and drawings, because that begins the process of manufacturing parts. And then in 1995 he decided to open his own business.

“It is very simple: did the license, paid a Deposit on the machine, bought the machine and work themselves”, — said Vasily.

Basil produces prototypes of parts mainly for the medical industry, pharmaceutical companies, Aero – and food industries, and also develops and creates her own devices. For example, did a special mill that can be used for crushing food and rubbing the medication into the powder. Now patented his invention.

“This mill I did in Ukraine for grinding grain, an idea I introduced here, says Stetsyuk. — But added something different, newer, so now my mill is awaiting patenting”.

Your success Vasily explains the heavy daily work. Little young immigrants, said the man, want to get your hands dirty with machine oil. However, for him, this path was the discovery of not only business but also myself.
