February, 16th 2017
SSI Shredding Systems, Inc. announces the addition of Paul Breithaupt to their team as Director of Engineering. He will be overseeing the day-to-day engineering operations as well as working to optimize SSI’s internal processes and products.
“SSI has been on my radar since I originally started my career. I think I saw them on the Discovery channel back in the day. The culture here is very genuine and that’s hard to find,” said Breithaupt.
Graduating with a degree in Manufacturing Engineering from California Polytechnic State University, Breithaupt has been working with an engineering consulting firm in Portland, OR for the past 7 years. There he primarily worked on capital projects for major food manufacturers such as Nabisco. While looking for a change in career Breithaupt found himself at SSI.
“It’s shredders at face value but if you think of all the different places they can be applied it’s pretty fascinating. There are so many different applications; you never know what’s going to come through the door. The people here care about their customers and that shows in their work and their work ethic,” said Breithaupt.
