Innovation and creativity, it’s important to us.
At Leatherman, we always strive to keep our minds up to speed with what’s happening around us. Afterall, quality innovation is truly rare and yet, it’s the foundation on which all Leatherman products are manufactured. It’s important that our engineers have opportunities to express their creativity and explore new ideas. On Friday, April 11th, we had an exciting challenge for our engineers. We had turnout from engineering minds across the board, in different departments of the company.
The competition was held by our Vice President of Product Engineering, Scott Pugliese. He set the parameters for each participant and they all got to work on what they thought was the best design in the finished products.
The competition was then judged by Tony Peterson – Manufacturing Engineering Manager, Charlie Calvin – Vice President of Manufacturing, Scott Boatman – Sourcing and Demand Planning Manager, Ben Rivera – President, and Scott Pugliese – Vice President of Product Engineering. They chose two winners; Brooke and Adam, who are both Product Design Engineers. Congratulations!
Point being, my friends, that we are hard at work creating some really awesome stuff here at Leatherman. The best way we know how to do that is to have a welcoming atmosphere for all to share new ideas and collaborate. Great job team!
