Prepac Manufacturing Ltd., Delta, BC
Working as an Engineering Assistant at the Engineering department of Prepac Manufacturing is a fantastic experience. Prepac is a successful North American designer, manufacturer and drop shipper of functional and stylish Ready-to-Assemble home furniture. During my co-op term, I have been given the great opportunity to work with the excellent team at Prepac and to see and learn how an order is processed into real products. My major project was creating packing instructions including 3D layout for packaging lines. In order to do that, I checked all the drawings of existing products and created 3D versions with AutoCAD of all the components of the products that Prepac recently sold in the last 6 month. I was also given the chance to work with the production department to continuously improve the packaging instructions. It was such an honor to see the positive impacts of my project. To me, this experience has been at least as valuable as the lessons I’ve learned through my academic studies. Thanks to Co-op, now I firmly believe that this work experience has educated me and made me a better employee for the future.
