What excites you about industrial manufacturing?

There’s nothing more rewarding than producing something. I enjoy everything from the teamwork and the equipment to the technical skills and grit required to manufacture a product successfully. I’ve been fortunate to learn the tricks of the trade from some of the best manufacturers in the world.

How do you spend your time away from work?

I spend my time spare time with my wife, cheering on our three sons at various sports, and inviting over friends, neighbors and family for barbeques.
