PRESS BRAKE OPERATOR
20 YEARS with O'Gara | Navy Veteran
My father told me about O'Gara when I was still in high school, and I thought it was really unique and interesting that they made bulletproof cars. I started here one week after graduation, so this is really my first job. At first, I did basic grinding and flattened steel, but a year in moved to the press brake, what I'm actually still doing now. Then 9/11 happened and I enlisted in the Navy for four years and came back in 2007, to the exact same machine.
I enjoy what I do and coming to work everyday. Here it's kind of like family. We are really on the cutting edge of the industry, and everyone who works here takes a lot of pride in that.
