As Design Engineer at Westside Equipment, George creates and maintains mechanical drawings, assists the production floor with technical questions about assemblies, and provides harvester engineering support to our customers.

With 11 years of service for Westside, George enjoys the challenge of creating machines under a tight build schedule. Prior to joining the team in 2006, he worked for Satake USA, Inc. in Modesto. George majored in BioResource and Agricultural Engineering at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo.

George and his wife, Brittney, make their home in Madera. When he’s not at work, he enjoys cooking, working on projects around the house, watching auto racing, and caring for their two dogs.
