Drinks & Drones at Pendleton UAS - July

Mark Groenenboom

Senior Mechanical Engineer

I'm a mechanical engineer that enjoys the challenge of delivering simple, cost-effective, user-friendly, and elegant solutions to complex mechanical problems. I have over 25 years of experience. I have been with Sigma design since 2009 and I was the 15th Sigma employee. My experience includes designs for automation, high-volume consumer electronics, aerospace, medical devices, augmented reality, and projects for tech giants.

In my spare time, I enjoy designing, procuring, testing, marketing, selling, and supporting the products of my business, G|Bomb Longboards. G|Bomb components are benchmarks in the niche world of distance skateboarding. G|Bomb has been a hobby business for over 15 years, and I have enjoyed riding the designs with our daughters at distance skateboarding competitions around the US and Europe. Personally, I find it very rewarding to walk into big box stores and see items that I played a key role in developing. Sigma enabled this. Not only seeing the products our teams

I'd be a lever, a long lever. Let's move the world!
