I have been employed with Means Transform Products for over 16 years.

Every day I come into work, I feel as though I’m going to my second home. I have become close with many of the people I work with, and we all work hard as a team to achieve our goals.

Means Industries is a great place to work; the culture here makes working feel not like a need but a want. This company is engineering driven which is perfect for an engineer such as me. We are encouraged to be creative and open minded to help make the products of the future. Means is unique in the fact that we are a medium sized company with a small company feel, and since we are a subsidiary of Amsted Industries we have the large company traits and benefits as well. I’ve been working here for over five years, and look forward to many more.

Product Applications Engineer

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.

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.
