A couple of months ago, we introduced Scherdel Sales and Technology of Muskegon to you and they were gracious enough to come on board with the Muskegon Channel to help out in our push called Step It Up Muskegon where we find 501c3 charitable organizations and give them a little boost financially as well as some recognition for the work they do and the people they serve.  Part of our agreement with Scherdel for this incredibly generous give is that we in turn help you get to know what goes on at Scherdel and how you might just find your way into a global company with endless advancement opportunities without even leaving Muskegon.  The best part about this partnership is that EVERYONE wins.  Charity get's a little help, Scherdel gets a recruiting platform and we get unprecedented access to what happens at this incredible company!


Today, we're back in the prototype department with Sam Gallmeyer.  Sam's a Hope College grad and he's explaining to us what it is to make a "prototype".  To begin, it's an idea.  Simple enough right?  From the idea comes a drawing usually and from that drawing highly skilled people set to work on making something come to life with full functionality that can benefit one or many different products.  At Scherdel, it could be mobility equipment, automobile needs, electronics, medical, machine systems and more.  Keep in mind, yes, they are right here in Muskegon but their reach all over the world diversifies their abilities to meet the needs of todays manufacturing demands and no matter where you are on the employment ladder, there could be something in Scherdel for you! scherdel 3Click Here For Current Job Openings
