Why Engineering at Wahl? I’ve always been interested in ‘technical stuff’ and how things work. At Wahl, I work to fix and improve processes and help solve problems.

Kurt Akerman – Manufacturing Engineer at Wahl since 2010.

 

Working at Wahl has helped me start a career in my area of interest and has given me the opportunity to become part of a wonderful culture where being an employee means being part of a family. Wahl not only preaches family first, it also practices it and here every single person under the umbrella of Wahl’s rich and long heritage, is family. Wahl has always taken care of my every need and I know this is something I can always count on.

I chose the path of Industrial Engineering (I.E) because I wanted to work in a field without restrictions. Industrial Engineering is applicable to every sector, from manufacturing to information technology; an I.E can bring both engineering and management skills to any type of industry as their focus is on process improvement and processes are inherent to every sphere of life.
