By Colleen Cross
Dundas, Ont. – Heron Instruments recently welcomed David Mackie to its research and product development team.
Mackie joined the manufacturer of ground water monitoring equipment and products in 2015 for a one-year internship before returning to Carleton University to complete his degree in industrial design.
His newfound interest in the water sector led to focusing his major thesis project on providing clean water for underdeveloped rural communities, the company said in a news release.
Mackie has graduated and joins the company full time.
“His education brings not only an expertise in materials and manufacturing, but also a background in ergonomics, user interaction, colour theory and product psychology,” the release said.
Mackie said he is excited to bring advanced, innovative ideas to Heron Instruments’ newest developments, while maintaining or improving the robust and reliable products the company already manufactures.
