Mechanical Engineer

Are you ready to deliver the "Signature Experience"?

If so Bishop-Wisecarver may be the place for you.

Not all of California’s innovation comes from Silicon Valley…

Our founder, Bud Wisecarver, is somewhat of a mechanical genius – his patents and his business are proof of that. When asked why he started the business so many years ago, he said it was because he was able to solve mechanical problems that no one else could solve. Bud’s knack for innovation ranged from formal proposals and designs, to hasty chalk talks, sometimes diagrammed on the factory floor!
