All mechanical and electrical engineering is done in house, which always presents challenges due to the changing technology and custom nature of the equipment, it is rare that two machines are identical. Most of this is customer driven, since most companies are always looking to reduce labor cost through more automation and seeking to improve product quality. The nature of this type of constant development curve is what attracts certain types of individuals to it, when that mix is right it can be a very rewarding experience for those who enjoy the challenge.
The ability to work with a team to solve issues, come up with solutions and put them into the physical is the rewarding part of the job. Helping customers troubleshoot their older equipment to keep them running is also a challenging and rewarding aspect of the type of support required by an OEM manufacturer. It still is satisfying to see a large machine go from concept to completion that makes this sector of the industry continue to reward those who are up for the challenge.
