“A career in manufacturing has provided me with opportunities that I may not have had working in any other industry. Now, as a manufacturing engineer, I can utilize my strengths to positively impact our entire company, expanding far beyond the production floor. I get to work and build relationships with various groups of people, allowing me to learn and grow as I continue to gain experience.”
Afton has been a positive influence on the company as a whole in her time with Allmand Brothers. With a degree in Applied Science in Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Afton has taken her technical skills to evaluate and redesign the manufacturing flow process. This contributed to increased production capacity and efficiencies for the organization. Afton was integral to a move of the company’s entire fabrication and welding operation onto new equipment in a brand-new facility without experiencing a slow-down or requiring a shut-down.
