Travis Langton Weatherstrip Engineer5 years with Toyoda Gosei
Troy, Michigan, USA
"When I learned about the weatherstrip engineer position at Toyoda Gosei, I was immediately interested in the opportunity because of the growth potential for my career. Weatherstrips are a commodity that interface with so many other parts, so I have learned a lot about vehicles as a whole. As further training, I was offered an opportunity to relocate to Japan for 6 months to learn from my colleagues at our global headquarters. I made some very strong relationships with my Japanese coworkers and have a better understanding of the culture and company. Toyoda Gosei values the importance of succeeding as a group and acknowledging everyone’s effort."
