ROBRADY proudly announces the addition of Rob Steinhoff, Jackie Fendrick and Jaryn Miller to our studio. As a Mechanical Engineer, Steinhoff will work with Industrial Design and Rapid Prototype departments bringing solutions to product design related challenges. Fendrick is pioneering a new role at ROBRADY as Program Management Planner, refining organization and efficiency of projects. In the Rapid Prototype department Miller will facilitate new product builds.
Working as an automotive technician for Toyota, Steinhoff returned to school at the University of Florida to become a Mechanical Engineer. As a Mechanical Engineer for ROBRADY, Steinhoff has the opportunity to work on many different types of projects. He shares why this is important to him: “with diversity of projects, I am able to exercise and enhance a broad range of engineering skills, as opposed to being constrained to a single technical division.”
Jackie Fendrick will facilitate the process of tracking and measuring operational efficiency. For Fendrick, networking along with LinkedIn helped her to connect with ROBRADY. After visiting the studio for her interview Fendrick was inspired by the variety of products and projects: “Some of the things I liked about the studio was a collaborative work environment and seemingly limitless variety of products & projects.”
Jaryn Miller is a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design. He will support the Rapid Prototype department in a design fabrication role, engaging in design thinking through modeling. His work has been featured online by Fast Company and Wired. Initially Miller was attracted to ROBRADY design by the Vectrix Electric Superbike: “The Vectrix Superbike was actually one of the first concept vehicles I had ever seen and helped to lead me to the field of industrial design. So, it’s kind of ironic that the first step of my career is working with the company that helped spark my passion for design.”
