Steve Mumm’s colleagues say his enthusiasm and exuberance at work are an inspiration to those around him. Not only does he inspire the young staff members with his positive energy and optimism, but he also inspires many of the firm’s clients. Mumm’s experience includes the design of air handling units and ductwork distribution, plumbing, energy recovery, and piping systems for education, health care, commercial, and government facilities. He has contributed to two ASHRAE award-winning projects over the past few years, the most recent being the Aurora Medical Center in Grafton, Wis. The 525,000-sq-ft hospital had a budget of $150 million and featured a 2,230-ton chiller plant with energy recovery and a 1,200 BHP boiler plant, and 4,000 kW of emergency generators. Mumm also co-authored ASHRAE’s “Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) for Large Hospitals” in hopes that the publication would provide strategies for reducing energy by as much as 50% more than the organization’s current minimum requirements. Outside of work, Mumm has volunteered to speak at the Wisconsin Healthcare Engineering Assn. meetings, where he helped educate Wisconsin’s health care organizations about how upcoming code changes would impact their facilities. He enjoys getting outdoors in his canoe, on his cross-country skis, or on the golf course. He also enjoys trying local craft breweries around Madison while cheering on his beloved Packers and Brewers.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
