Tim Ford

CAD Technician

Growing up with a machinist father, as well as in a family full of artists, Tim considers mechanical design to have been embedded into his DNA from the start.

Today, he has 20+ year’s experience in multiple CAD programs and has created layouts, designs and accurate 3D models to meet OSHA standards for grain handling equipment and layouts for farm and brewing companies. He is also an expert in providing support and quality control for sheet metal cells, mark ups and corrections to drawings for custom HVAC units.

Above all, Tim enjoys collaborating with engineers to improve existing products. As Tim says, “It’s great to enjoy what I do for a living. Not everyone can say that, and I feel very fortunate to be part of a team as experienced and people-oriented as EFI Group.”

Tim earned his Associate’s degree in Specialized Technology from the York Technical Institute, specializing in Computer Aided Drafting and Design, and he graduated with academic honors.

After hours, Tim likes riding motorcycles, attending motorsports events of all kinds and even entering his car in shows (when he’s not busy tinkering with it). He also enjoys hiking, visiting new places and has a deep-seated passion for watching the Ravens beat the Steelers. Of course, the one activity that beats them all is spending time with his daughter. He especially loves taking her fishing.
