David M.

Control Panel Builder

“I like to work with my hands and I didn’t want to be sitting behind a desk all day so a career in manufacturing is providing me opportunities to learn and grow my skills in the industry.

College of DuPage is giving me the education which supports my work at Simplex. Through Project Hire-Ed, I rotated through many roles at Simplex and now, as a wireman my work has really expanded. I know this is a great opportunity for me to learn and work in my chosen career of manufacturing.”

Now working at Simplex System Controls and enrolled in Project Hire-Ed at College of DuPage, David balances his work schedule with his course load, while continuing to build his skillset.
