“Dean is younger than me but has the moxie and where-with-all that you see in much older design engineers that have paid their dues with a few design errors. His speed, knowledge of fabrication and assembly methods, different components and how to combine them into a design of an assembly machine/system that is reliable as it leaves design for the build shop. I would work with Dean on any project that I quoted because I know he can and will keep the project out of the weeds.” April 15, 2010
Designed around and built from ground up, J-Hook Machinery entirely from leftovers/scrap from previous projects enabling company to reduce the cost of manufacture and virtually double the profit margin available. Further – designed this machine with the successful added (not requested) intent/purpose of reducing workers compensation claim costs (carpal tunnel) for the client and their worker
Created a industry-wide standard for store fixtures (ADA Compliant check writing stands) allowing for national recognition for innovation and quality of manufacture – thereby generating significantly increased sales and ease of product “saleability”.

Took a manual (written then mailed to plant via US postal service) work order process at Tier 1 Auto Supplier and designed/wrote database to make it an electronic process capable of being emailed directly to plants across country to allow for increase in manufacture speed of prototyping, along with reduced printing and mailing costs. This also allowed for cost savings directly at the labor level of the engineering and production staff.
