Right on, James! Glad someone recognized the talent you have to offer.
I'll keep you in mind as a resource if/when I find myself looking for work ;)

No trains involved with this one.... just Humvees, helicopters and planes. :p

TJ, I was in manufacturing before I became an engineer, so I know what they usually have to go through. I'll try not to let that happen, I am a fabricator/manufacturer at heart.

Thank all...

Congrats Bud.
We'll have to discuss your work schedule before I'll agree to you taking this job. As long as it doesnt affect our wheelin. Then I'm O.K. with it. Otherwise. You'll just have to remain a full time student. :)

Well one good thing is, I work 9 hours days and get weekends and every other Friday off. I would imagine this is true "normally", who ever said businesses operate "normally"? ;)

Congratulations James!

I sent Simula a resume right before the tech economy went south. Simula almost went under back then, but I am glad they made it.

They don't make anything "techy".

Some of the stuff they make is cool. I will figure out, with time, what all I can say. After not working for 5.5 years and then having to put in a 10 hour day, I am beat.

Thanks all.

No tech stuff? What the heck are they making in Phoenix these days? Just the ceramic inserts for body armour? The Simula branch in Arizona was starting into some other interesting products a few years back that made the company worthwhile watching. I think they had something to do with aircraft safety.

Do you think Simula (Armor Holdings) has a future? I tracked their stock for quite some time and then dropped it when it started falling.

I just went out and checked. SMU no longer exists, they are now traded under AH (Armor Holdings). That company looks better than SMU did by itself.

Body armor, vehicle armor, armor seats, fixed wing aircraft seats, personal floation devices, parachutes and a few other things.

All the stuff they are making is for the government.

So while business is very good right now, I am not sure how it will be in the future. This may be true with the AH stock as well. Hopefully R&D will keep them ahead of the competition and hopefully I am a part of that R&D.

Good for you! R&D departments usually have the slowest turnovers and the lowest layoff rates. :D
