Mechatronics Engineer - Research & Development
5 Years at Pridgeon & Clay
Why did you come to Pridgeon & Clay?
I was looking for an internship as part of my requirements for school. After completing my internship at Pridgeon & Clay, I stayed with the company as a full-time employee.
What do you do now?
I work in the Mechatronics group, developing laser welding adn automation processes. After a process has been developed and is needed, I design machines to automate the process to produce parts for our customers. I see the project start to finish - from design, build, and to the PPAP run.
What is interesting about your job?
It changes almost every day. It is nice to be able to develop welds one day and design a cell the next. Being able to work with the new technology here at Pridgeon & Clay is nice.
What makes Pridgeon & Clay a great place to work?
Management here has given me a lot of freedom to do what I think is right as we develop new processes. I've been given a lot of responsibility with developing advanced weld processes, and been allowed to determine the scope of my work.
