Preston started at Quality Transformer & Electronics while pursuing his bachelor’s degree at San Jose State University. He immediately contributed to design and documentation capabilities, increasing AutoCAD offerings and using his skills to improve product construction and provide thermal simulations on electrical designs. He has spearheaded internal projects to develop new manufacturing systems and techniques involving robotics and automation technologies. Preston has also taken the lead on drawing up plans for construction and layout of multiple buildings on a new manufacturing site, in addition to other significant contributions.

Fun fact: One of Preston’s latest hobbies includes flying drones to obtain great aerial footage of the company’s current and upcoming manufacturing facilities.
