Affinity for Mechanical Design | Terry Walker, Owner
Terry Walker
Owner / Lead Engineer

Started Design at 15 yrs old

I started my engineering career at 15 as a draftsman at a small plastic injection mold company in Lombard, Illinois. Everything about this small company was cutting edge! Their entire employee base, every single person in every single position, was hired as a high school intern. Every employee was sent to trade school at no cost to them. There was no yearly work review process, as the owner reviewed you monthly! You always knew exactly what improvements you needed to make to be the best you could be. And we all had something in common, it was the only job any of us had ever had. Needless to say, turnover was practically non-existent, as employees simply never quit! I learned more than I could have ever imagined from working there.

This company’s, out-of-the-box methods produced employees with unrivalled company loyalty and work ethic. The injection molds they manufactured were impeccable. They blew away their competition’s quality, which meant their molds were worth substantially more money. 

The owner of this company and his methods have shaped my entire career. The quality of my work has always been quintessential to my satisfaction. I  judge my work, its quality, its validity and its usefulness by how I think my old boss, Wally, would judge it.

It is said that you are the sum of what your teachers taught you. Wally taught me how to work hard, how to treat people fairly, how to exceed beyond expectation, and how to use my talent of seeing what doesn’t exist.
