Quick 4-Minute Story for Materials Engineers


65 Years of the Bomas Legacy

Happy Anniversary to the Annese Family!


Born in Boston

The machining of ceramics industry was relatively young, and so was Pat Annese. The day Pat officially launched Bomas Machine Specialties, Inc., in Boston (BOmas MAchine Specialties), he just wanted to be a success. The ensuing years proved him to be a pioneer.


Joe Goes to Work

Growth Came Quick

Needing more space, Pat and Joe moved the Bomas facility to Brighton, Massachusetts.


A Morning in June

Joe Annese graduates from college. He had been working at Bomas “since forever”, as he put it, so his future role in management was inevitable.


Growth Continues

It didn’t take long to outgrow the Brighton facility and the Annese’s purchased, and relocated to, a major plant in Somervile, Massachusetts.


A Special Day in May

Here comes the bride! Joe Annese and Theresa Lynn Whiley say, “We Do”!

Joe and Theresa’s son, Mark Annese, joins Bomas after graduating from college, and now they are three generations strong.



Mark Annese promoted to General Manager of Bomas.


Strike Up the Band

Bomas celebrates a major milestone by machining their two-millionth MOR Bar and confirming their leadership role in the industry; an achievement recognized by engineers across the country.



Joe and Theresa’s second son, Joe Jr., had already answered his first calling as a firefighter, rising through the ranks and becoming a lieutenant. In 2021, he joined Bomas part time, and the family legacy is more secure than ever.



With the future secure and the business still growing, the Annese’s took a big step, buying and moving into, a new larger facility in Woburn, Massachusetts.


2024 and Beyond

Here’s to Joe, Theresa, Mark, Joe Jr, and the next 65 years!
