I have been working for Means as a product engineer for over 5 years. I enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the collaboration between engineering, sales, marketing, and purchasing to complete important program oriented tasks. I have worked for large companies before where you are treated like a number. At Means you are valued as an individual and treated like a member of a family. As a company we are always pushing the limits of technology and coming up with innovative ideas to take the company to the next level.

I wanted to work at Means because of their solid reputation in the auto industry. Our products and philanthropy showed me that the company cares about the bottom line and giving back to society.

I first joined the team at Means Industries as a summer intern.  As an intern, I saw some excellent career opportunities as I was rotated through the different Means facilities and job requirements.  I was intrigued by the friendly, team oriented, atmosphere.  Once I completed my degree in mechanical engineering, I was offered the opportunity to start my career as a product applications engineer in propulsion systems. Over the last 2 years I have learned a lot about our product, and have gained valuable experience in the automotive industry. Looking back at some of the other career opportunities I could have taken, I truly believe that Means was the right decision for the start of my career.

Operations Excellence Manager

Means attracted me with the vision of the company that management expressed. I was also blown away by the extremely positive company culture. From the moment I entered the facility for the first time, I was taken aback by the difference between Means and other automotive facilities. I really admire the fact that Means Management stresses employee development, and in turn employees are trained very well. Another thing I really like is that most promotions occur from within. Feeling valued and important by my company makes me look forward to coming into work every day.

Product Development Engineer

I joined Means as an engineering co-op in 2014 while I was completing my undergraduate program at Kettering University. I got to work in several departments and locations before ending up in the R&D group at the Propulsion Systems unit where I joined full time as a product development engineer after graduating in 2016. Now I work with my colleagues to develop clutch system technologies adapted to the needs of future powertrains. It’s been exciting to be a part of the latest growth and evolution of the company, and I have been fortunate to have opportunities to learn from those in leadership positions. Additionally, Means strongly supports continued learning in academic settings. This environment has been a catalyst for my own personal growth, and I am grateful for my time here.

Due to world economics, I have had an opportunity to work for a number of global companies of varying sizes in both the automotive and chemical industries with responsibilities ranging from my first as a product engineer to various developmental engineering, manufacturing engineering, program management, corporate engineering liaison, engineering management, maintenance management and capital management positions.  This career path has provided familiarity with a wide variety of global and domestic employer, customer and supplier work environments and cultures.  With this in mind, it is easy for me to say that Means is a great place to work!
