Scott Woida, President
Scott Woida, President

Scott Woida graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) in 1987. In 1991, Scott founded Midwest Engineered Systems. It was his goal to design and build automation systems for local manufacturers. As his business and staff began to grow, Scott diversified Midwest Engineered System’s capabilities into other markets including, custom machine design, drives systems/converting, and robotic automation.

In 2012, Midwest Engineering Systems experienced strong growth, hiring almost 70 people and increasing staffing levels to approximately 100 employees. This growth has brought Midwest Engineered Systems into a new business market, robotic automated welding.

Today, Scott employs over 130 employees in his facility in Waukesha, WI.
