About

I am an accomplished 18 year Tool & Die Maker with equal accomplishments in engineering spanning over an additional 15 years. Worked in the design, manufacturing and assembly of plastic injection molds and machine tooling (new and replacement parts) for companies like Lutron Electronics, Taylor Technologies, Amp Incorporated (now Tyco Electronics), Plasticert and Framatone Connectors from (hidden) as a toolmaker and shop supervisor eventually becoming a shop owner with 12 Ft employees.

I made the transition to full-time engineering when I worked in product research and development for EdgeCraft Corporation leading the design and development of 2 new products that launched in (hidden). Moving closer to home I was hired at Joseph Machine Company where I was challenged with designing modular tooling for their custom SFMC manufacturing machines. This led to a 15% reduction in manufacturing costs and a 30% reduction in design time. I was the lead engineer for the launch of the Quad Head Sash Cleaner in 2006.

I took a job in 2007 as an engineer at Manitowoc Cranes in Shady Grove Pa. I was initially a production support engineer eventually working my way into the structures group working on new products and assisted, as needed, in the custom application department where we would design and deliver many different types of customized units per customer specific requirements. When I left after my 10 year tenure I had led an engineering team of 30+ engineers on the launch of 2 new products released to market and was the lead engineer on major custom applications (500+ hour efforts) on over 20 custom machines, many leading to new option offerings on standard products. New products launched include the GCD09 and GCD15. The NTC55 was a new product launched from the result of a special custom application for Stevenson Crane in Harrisburg Pa. Customizations I was in charge of included the entire Industrial Line, most of the National Crane product line and small Grove RT units.

After a 3 year stint at HydroWorx International I decided it was time to relaunch my own business and opened All Points Design where I offer mechanical engineering and design services on many types of products.
