Alex Wong – Sales and Engineering
A mechanical engineer for almost 20 years in the adhesive and adhesive dispensing industry. Alex worked for Nordson Canada for 17 years as a Senior Applications Engineer. Before he studied Engineering he was an Auto Repair Technician. The skills learned servicing cars complimented his engineering knowledge which allows him to be very successful. At Nordson he designed, fabricated and installed numerous custom, original adhesive dispensing systems and parts. He also helped technicians troubleshoot difficult problems and was an instructor for equipment training.
Most of his work involved integration of adhesive equipment into a customer’s machine or development brand new concept. In light of those experiences, Alex has a very strong understanding of all aspects of machinery including PLC controls, automation, hydraulics, robotics etc. In the last year, he changed his career path to an adhesive sales role to develop the chemical side of the business. Alex is proud to be a part of OBX Works Inc. where we can combine both technologies and have the freedom to work with the best companies!
