Originally from Bosnia, Emir and his family moved to St. Louis in 2000 where he earned his degree in Control Systems Technology from Ranken Technical College.
Prior to joining Beckwood, Emir worked as a programmer for palletizing equipment at a small machinery manufacturer in St. Louis. He enjoyed the work so much he decided to make a career out of it.
Today, Emir is one of Beckwood’s premiere Electrical Controls Engineers. Since joining the Beckwood team in 2018, he has been instrumental in programming several high-profile press projects including:
- A 75-ton tilting press used for Reaction Injection Molding (RIM)
- A 30-ton powder compacting press used to form PTFE
- A 50-ton straightening press used to insert press fit pins for street sweepers
- A 2,500-ton gib-guided press used make embossed heat exchanger plates in nuclear missile tubes for the U.S. Navy
“I like the “Can-Do” attitude at Beckwood. Everybody is super friendly, and they don’t mind helping each other. I also love the challenges that come with each custom machine.”
Fun Fact: Emir and his family love the outdoors! They enjoy hiking, backpacking, camping, and try to visit as many national parks as they can.
