This position is for a Manufacturing Technician, based out of our Woodstock Facility. The intern will use his Engineering background to operate state-of-the-art automated manufacturing machinery (including the brand-new Andritz Soutec SouRing-AB which was designed exclusively for AMTB), monitor and inspect the quality of all products in the assigned work area, and make adjustments to machinery to ensure consistent quality of goods.
The automotive components that the intern will be manufacturing and inspecting are directly responsible for vehicle lightweighting, which will reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Additionally, the intern will be working on the recently acquired Tesla Model Y production line. Range anxiety (the fear of running out of batter while driving) is one of the major reasons why people are hesitant to switch from gas-powered vehicles to electric vehicles. AMTB’s lightweighting solutions will help increase the battery life of the Model Y. We believe that this is a key factor in getting consumers to transition to electric vehicles, and ultimately reduce their environmental footprint.
