For a Design Engineer like CJ Gorman, much of the day is spent finding solutions to challenges. Whether seeking to improve a process or product, it’s CJ’s role to create remedies and fixes and then work with the team to test them out. In the end, we can execute the best plan for our customers. Meet the Man with the Plan, CJ Gorman…

A Typical Day at Mallard

My average day involves designing gravity flow systems – pallet flow and carton flow, using Inventor (3D CAD) and AutoCAD. I help our production team when they have complicated press brake and laser setups. I field many calls from clients and installers to help with installation questions. I also help our sales team with preliminary drawings.

While my official title at Mallard is Design Engineer I am known within my team as “The Guardian”.

Why Mallard

What I like most about working at Mallard is the ever-changing needs of our clients. I am always doing something different. There are many different designs that I am constantly working that are always challenging. I have been at Mallard for coming up on 10 years.
