Nick Hunter’s love for learning led him to a career in engineering.

“I was always looking over the next fence to see what I can learn, and one of those fences was research and development,” Nick says. “I found there was more than just equipment, there was a whole science to how it works and the best opportunities for the equipment’s success. In the research and development group, I saw the future I wanted to be in.”

As the instrumentation and electrical reliability leader at our Fort Dodge, Iowa plant, Nick sees the continuous growth and change in the industry. Although the equipment continues to improve, the big change is in the data it provides.

“It’s not just about a reading from a screen, it’s about what the reading means,” Nick says. “A simple number can save hours of work, prevent equipment failures or provide a reading to prevent unsafe data collection.”

Nick analyzes the data and shares his learnings with his team and watches them apply it in the field. He says seeing the Koch culture and guiding principles applied through his team and watching them succeed is most fulfilling.
