SFMA SPONSORED INTERN AT HOERBIGER

The HOEBIGER Corporation of America (HCA) beneficiary of the 2016 SFMA Golf Tournament Internship Scholarship was Maya Basquin, a Manufacturing Engineering Intern. Maya earned a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering & Management Systems from the University of Central Florida prior to starting her internship with HOERBIGER in 2016.

During her internship, Maya worked on many projects including our Osprey project, Tool Crib project and her current project, Project Gulfstream. Her contributions in earlier projects were found to be so valuable that she was recently offered and accepted a full-time position as a Manufacturing Engineer at HOERBIGER. The SFMA Internship Scholarship helped make this happen.


Applications for the 2017 Internship Scholarships are now being accepted from all SFMA Manufacturer Companies. Don’t miss out on this valuable opportunity. More information can be found here.
