As a kid Nathan Wilmoth was adventurous – he once attempted flight with just a parasail and a tractor! After getting off track during his teenage years and early 20’s, he went back to school as an adult and graduated from Georgia Tech with a 4.0. Now as the Vice President of Operations for M.A. Industries in Peachtree City, GA, he has co-authored six patents, manages a great team of individuals, and gets to tap into his childhood love of design and experimentation every day.
Wilmoth says, “Manufacturing has provided me with a sense of purpose, strengthened my character, enhanced my integrity, and gave me a strong sense of community,” he said. “I owe a lot to manufacturing and manufacturing does a lot for people.”
