Small world it is, that was my grandpa. You must have been the one who took over when I moved to tech and started getting summer internships.

That makes sense. You should be able to access your MTU email still.

I'm still down here in marinette working at KS Kolbenschmidt US as a manufacturing engineer over the Nissan and GM machining lines. We are a tier 1 supplier of pistons for Ford, Nissan, GM, CumminGs, Harley Davidson, Navistar, Cat, John Deer, and others. Pretty much almost any automotive, medium duty, and smaller heavy duty pistons. Pretty high pace, demanding job, but fun to make things you are interested in and also get to travel to Germany, Italy, Mexico, Japan, China, and other places. I am slated to be in Japan again this July, and back to Germany in October for machine run offs.

I feel like I took a tour of that place for my castings class. Pretty cool establishment. I learned a lot that day.

Yea, I know we just had a bunch of MTU students come in for a tour, but I was too busy to meet any of them. They usually come down once a year. Only bad part of our foundry is they don't do any forging, only casting.
