Tell us about Sierramotion. How do you differentiate yourselves on your approach? Sierramotion is a custom motor and motion system engineering solutions firm. Our key differentiator is the ability to utilize our extensive experience to solve unique problems with proven engineered solutions.

The company is excited to create customized solutions specific to markets and new applications enabling OEM customers to optimize their solutions.
Can you share an entertaining industry experience? Early in my career, I received a call from a customer that said, “your motor is working great, and we love the performance, however, the lead wires keep getting shorter.” As it turns out, the stator was rotating inside the housing unit, sucking the lead wires in! That was a long time ago, and humorous in retrospect – today customer satisfaction is paramount and customers praise our diligence and aptitude in mechatronic expertise.
What was your most rewarding or challenging project? It is very rewarding to help our customers achieve their end goal. It can be as simple as solving a particular engineering challenge or just sharing lessons learned. Engineers who are designing new products and bringing them to life have various experiences. I continually learn from my customers and I’m not afraid to admit what I don’t know. Engineers need to be comfortable with the unknown or lack of specific subject matter expertise. Technology is always advancing and teaching us new and better ways to live and work. Working together with our customers helps to streamline the process, shorten time to market, and ensures a better product.
