Create the manufacturing infrastructure of the future

The world needs more Macgyvers like you. You have an extraordinary knack for solving problems and creating improvements.

We need your ingenuity to define a recurring problem in a critical gas or liquid process and develop a solution to that problem using fluid system components. Examples of fluid system components are items like valves, tubing, filters, regulators, fittings, etc. that work on tubing 2" or smaller in diameter.

The challenge is ideal for someone in engineering, operations, or maintenance. The industry could be aerospace, chemical/petrochemical, food processing, life sciences, oil and gas, power, semiconductor, ship building, alternative energy or any other industry with a critical gas or liquid application.

Do you have a recurring problem but no solution? We want to hear about that too!
