King of Controls (76368) Senior Controls Engineer / Automotive Automation

We all know that manufacturing has become highly complex and automated. Robots, vision systems, Conveyors, CNC, test equipment, are just some of these systems! They can be the holy grail for running a profitable manufacturing operation or your worst nightmare when it doesn’t work!! BUT NOT TO WORRY, because we know a highly skilled automation engineer, Siemens controls engineer or programmer with an impressive track record in supporting manufacturing operations. He uses the latest versions of Siemens software or Allen Bradley to troubleshoot/debug using the latest version of studio 5000. He has multiple automation industry certifications under his belt. He has supported OEMs including Ford, BMW, GM, Chrysler, VW, Tesla as well as Tier 1 such as Gestamp Benteler for automation for new production lines, critical plant breakdowns, troubleshooting, and software/equipment upgrades.

Although most of his history is in the automotive sector, he has successfully completed automation assignments in other industries as well. When it comes to solving your automation challenges, HE CAN DO IT ALL. One look at his resume will confirm this fact. He just completed a year long project and is looking for his next challenge!
