CEO/Process Technology Leader
Chemical Engineering is a critical element in many manufacturing applications and is one that is often overlooked when evaluating the overall effectiveness of a production process. A solid background in manufacturing process methods is what makes a Chemical Engineer an essential part of the team in a manufacturing organization. Ursula brings that process based experience to IA. This expertise allows us to take on process based projects such as those that involve coating and brazing and also supports virtually all of our projects with respect to lubrication and cleaning.
Ursula has spent over 30 years utilizing her Chemical Engineering experience in the optimization of manufacturing processes. She has a strong background in lubricant development, part surface preparation, coating processes, washing, and much more. Her multi-disciplined approach supports the development of robust mechanical systems making targeted use of process methods that ensure quality production as well as optimum tooling longevity.
Ursula founded Innovative Automation based upon the understanding that manufacturers deserve machines, tools, and processes that are engineered to provide a unique synergistic solution based upon their unique requirements. She pulled together a strong technical team with the broad range of experience needed to develop manufacturing process solutions that would provide the best value for our customers.
In 2015, Ursula received national recognition as a STEP Ahead award recipient from The Manufacturing Institute in Washington D.C. This award is presented to women in manufacturing that have made significant contributions to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Production. Ursula is proud to have found her home in the manufacturing world and gladly supports the development and mentoring of women who also want to gain a foothold in Manufacturing.
