Employee Grows With Mayco: Brandon Potts Story
Plant Manufacturing Engineer
I started working for Mayco International in January 2016 as a 19-year-old who did not know anything about automotive plastics. I worked in the Product Engineering group as a Co-Op student while attending Kettering University. While working for Mayco as a Co-Op I gained exposure to many of the company’s departments: Engineering, Quality, Testing, Tooling, and Manufacturing. I graduated from Kettering University with a Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering in June of 2020. I started full-time with Mayco in July 2020 working in the Advanced Manufacturing Engineering group working to develop equipment for new business and helping the plants have successful program launches. In December of 2021, I was presented with an opportunity to transfer to Mayco Hartford City as the Plant Manufacturing Engineer. That opportunity appealed to me for two major reasons, the first was that I was already familiar with the product and processes at Hartford City and the second was that it provided a path for me to continue to learn and develop skills to help further my career. It was a tough decision for me to make as I have lived in Michigan my whole life and I have never lived far away from my family, but I ultimately made the decision to take the position because the growth opportunity was too great to pass up.
Making The Move to Hartford City
It has been almost five months since I made the move to Mayco Hartford City, and I can say with 100% certainty that I am glad I did. Working with the team at Hartford City has been an amazing experience and I am constantly learning each day. Every day has unique challenges and I love that I can contribute to the team to continue improving the plant to achieve success. My core values are built on pushing myself to be a hard worker, constantly working to develop new skills, and making sure that I am a valuable employee and good co-worker. I hold myself to high standards and that is what helps drive me to achieve success. I am beyond grateful to Mayco for taking a chance on me and putting me in a position to succeed. I continue to look forward to seeing what the future brings for both myself and Mayco.
