One (or more) interesting facts about Scott:
Scott started work at a computer store, then moved to a tractor carburetor shop, and finally the Seed Conditioning department of Iowa State. He grew up working on 1970s motorcycles and vehicles – cool!
During high school, Scott built a couple of prototype 3D printers for personal projects.
For about 2 weeks Scott held a “world record”, was part of a team of 4 that assembled a John Deere M Tractor from bare engine and transmission to running and driving in around 30 mins. (He was meant for this position!)
Hey Scott – What are you most excited about in your new position? Overall, I’m looking forward to getting into a project and running with it. Excited to join the team here at Air Seeder Parts.
Other: Scott drinks coffee like a fish.
(Do fish drink coffee? Maybe those ones with the bulging eyes.)
Welcome Scott! We are excited to have you on our team.
