Hirschvogel Scholarship recipients tour company’s facility

Student News | Monday, October 26, 2020

Two Mechanical Engineering Technology majors, Liz Allen and Harvey West, recently toured the Hirschvogel manufacturing facility on Columbus’ south side. They were joined by Dave Cofer and Tom Capps-Harshaw from the Office of Employer Engagement and Experiential Learning, and Adele Wright, professor in Engineering & Transport Technology.

The tour included walk-throughs of cold and warm-forging facilities and Hirschvogel’s newly renovated training facility. Kim Miller, HR director, and Abdiqani (AJ) Mohamud, HR business partner, hosted the tour. 

Headquartered in Germany, the Hirschvogel Automotive Group is one of the largest international steel and aluminum forging automotive suppliers in Central Ohio. The Columbus location is the company’s only presence in the United States.

The students are recipients of a donor-advised scholarship made possible by the support of the Hirschvogel Foundation. Hirschvogel is also a participating employer partner in the Modern Manufacturing Work-Study program.
