Summary

Aldo Juan Roos

As a forward-thinking Mechanical Engineer with over 7 years of experience, I thrive on innovation and meeting deadlines. My journey began on a farm in South Africa, where my passion for engineering ignited. There, I learned the value of hands-on problem-solving, from fixing machinery to understanding its inner workings. This upbringing instilled in me a practical, out-of-the-box approach to engineering challenges. Today, I bring this same dedication and ingenuity to every project, from initial concept to delivering polished solutions.
