Brian Mayo has always enjoyed taking things apart and putting them back together. Today Mayo is SCC’s 2021 Outstanding Alumni North Mankato campus honoree. After graduating from St. Peter High School in 1995, he enrolled in the Machine Tool program at South Central College (then South Central Technical College). While attending college, he worked at APT Machining and Fab – the family business owned by his parents.
After graduating in 1997, he continued to work in the family machine shop, becoming head of the CNC department, which at the time had five machines and two employees. In 2005, he took over operation of the CNC division and moved it to its current location in Kasota, MN. Brian and his wife Maegan purchased the CNC division from his parents in 2008 and purchased the machining division in 2015.
“The skills I learned at SCC has allowed me to do what I enjoy, and this has allowed me to create a successful business,” said Mayo.
