Then Charli interviews Matt DeFord.

Matt acquired his bachelor’s degree in Engineering Technology from Texas State University in 2004. After completing an internship at TB Wood’s, he accepted a position as an Application Engineer. In the Summer of 2006, Matt joined Ameridrives, as an Application Engineer, to work on the development of a new disc coupling targeted for the natural gas compression market.  While at Ameridrives, he aided in the relocation of the Ameridrives Standard Gear product line to New Braunfels, TX. In 2007, after Altra Motion purchased TB Wood’s, Matt went back to the TB Wood’s plant in San Marcos, TX, where he worked with both Ameridrives and TB Wood’s coupling products.  He became a Product Support Manager in 2009 and then was promoted to his current role as Product Manager for General Purpose Disc Couplings in 2011. Matt is married and lives in New Braunfels, TX. In his spare time, he enjoys building 4×4 vehicles, 4 wheeling, hiking, camping, and travel.
