    Machine Shop Captain

    Shop Captain Ben Towle went to school for metal fabrication welding/sheet metal/Black smithing at Shawsheen Vocational school, originally for art reasons.

    Ben took up classes that allowed him to work with sheet metal and gain more experience in welding, for a couple years, before becoming a tool room machinist apprentice.

    After switching to a Bio Semiconductor company, he ended up running their machine shop for 6 years. Later he began his current job doing R&D production in the auto industry.
