Everyone on our team of engineers, designers, and machinists thrives on finding better ways to solve complex problems. We find that multiple perspectives often amount to a clearer view of what’s possible. After hours, you’ll find most of us recharging our creativity on trails, forest roads, and bike paths across the Pacific Northwest.
