Seco Tools has named Tyler Martin as its new manager of engineering services. Formerly the manager of technical services, Martin previously oversaw the Technical Center at Seco’s headquarters in Troy, Michigan. In addition to the Technical Center, Martin will now also manage Seco’s Engineered Solutions team, working closely with customers to assist in the development of fully optimized manufacturing processes.
“I’m very excited by the opportunity to make a greater contribution to Seco,” said Martin. “Our engineering services give our customers access to our worldwide network of experts, and I’m looking forward to working with the global team to further improve our capabilities, expand our services and develop new partnerships, all to bring even greater benefit to our customers.”
Martin initially joined Seco as a technical specialist, focusing on outside sales, before earning promotion to Seco Technical Education Program (STEP) technician in March 2011. For more than six years, Martin ran benchmark tests, evaluated new products and demonstrated techniques to students in STEP courses. At the same time, he began to pursue further education at Eastern Michigan University, where he is currently completing the coursework for his master’s degree in engineering management.
Prior to joining Seco, Martin served as a manufacturing engineer for an Illinois-based manufacturing company, overseeing the business’ CNC tooling and supply management. He also garnered experience in education as a part-time faculty member at Illinois Valley Community College, where he taught courses on CNC machining and industrial technology. Martin got his start in manufacturing as a research and development engineer following his graduation from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Science in integrated manufacturing systems technology.
