August 26, 2021

It’s been true for a long time, but now it’s official…

Jerry Gould is a BadAss Engineer.

Valence Industrial, a contract manufacturer based in Ohio and Kentucky, has officially recognized EWI’s Senior Technology Leader for Resistance and Solid-state Welding for his lifelong achievements and contributions in a Valence profile series called #BadAssEngineers. Some people might think it is a dubious distinction, but it is truly an honor. At EWI, we’re proud to claim Jerry as one of our own.

In 1985, shortly after the founding of EWI, Jerry was discovered and hired as our first engineer. Ever since, he has served as a critical member of EWI’s senior technical team concentrating on forge welding activities. Jerry’s work involves understanding this class of processes at a fundamental level, then applying that knowledge to address specific industrial challenges. Jerry has experience across a range of industrial sectors, from automotive to aerospace to heavy manufacturing. He has published more than 170 papers, holds seven patents, and has authored 20 EWI Cooperative Research Reports. Jerry is also a Fellow of the American Welding Society and has received numerous awards for his contributions in engineering and manufacturing technology.

Congratulations to our long-term colleague, Jerry Gould – long may he continue to be a #BadAssEngineer!
