This summer, Beckwood has seen its largest class of interns in company history. With immersive programs in marketing, engineering, and production, our interns get hands-on, real-world experience doing what they love. Here’s a glimpse into their programs:
Elvis Leka & Gracie Malon are interning with our Engineering department. They just completed R&D work for a new sheet hydroforming press and are now developing assembly drawings for various machinery, including a 3,500-ton bulge forming press. Gracie just finished her junior year at the University of Missouri—Columbia, and Elvis will be a junior at the Missouri University of Science and Technology in the fall.
