EMAIL   LINKED IN    FULL BIO

Eddy graduated from Canterbury University Engineering Department with a Bachelor of Engineering with Honors in Mechanical Engineering. Since graduation, Eddy has worked in New Zealand and the United Kingdom We’re thrilled to have Eddy as part of our team here at Caliber. 

I have a curiosity how things work and how things are made, I enjoy problem solving and coming up with creative solutions while following design standards and good practices, and I find it rewarding to see a design come to life. I am mostly experienced in machinery design for fast moving consumer goods and material handling. This is how I gained a lot of experience designing sheet metal components and large assemblies.
