Ben Hicks

Director of Engineering

Having worked on projects around the globe, Ben brings a great deal of knowledge to every project he is involved in.  From projects in Indonesia to ones closer to home, Ben likes the challenge of facing new projects and the complexities they bring.   

With each project being different, Ben has become proficient in working on a variety of 3D platforms such as SolidWorks, Inventor and CATIA.  Ben utilizes his knowledge to create the various parts & pieces of a project first and then, he assembles them virtually in the computer.

At home, Ben likes to spend time with his wife and daughter – watching her play softball or soccer – and working on remodeling their house.
