Campus: Mount Joy | CIP Code: 15.0403
Instructor: Eli Martin
Instructor: Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology
Eli Martin brings with him 20 years of industrial maintenance experience to Lancaster County Career and Technology Center, working in many areas of the trade, from NASCAR mechanic to food and pharmaceutical manufacturing millwright. At the age of 12, Eli started working in the family construction business learning basic carpentry. While in high school he studied cabinetry and millwork at the Brownstown campus of Lancaster County Career and Technology Center, where he learned many of the finer aspects of wood working.
After graduation Eli followed his passion for racing, shifting into the automotive field, prompting him to obtain his first professional license, PA State inspection mechanic. He became a competent auto body and paint professional, painting a Philadelphia International Auto show winner. He honed his mechanical and fabrication skills to the highest level. Spending 2 years as a part time NASCAR fabricator/pit crew member, he began to see the correlation between making a car go 500 miles as fast as possible (while looking great) to efficiently manufacturing a product with zero defects to be a low cost producer of a quality product.
With a passion for problem solving, metal fabrication and learning Eli changed his focus to industrial maintenance in the food and pharmaceutical industries and never found a shortage of opportunities to repair or improve processes in the industrial environment.
Just prior to joining the staff here he worked in industrial HVAC, having earned his refrigeration license. Continuing his education at Thaddeus Stevens, Millersville University and Penn State he brings all these experiences and more into the classroom, leading by example. Living the philosophy of earning a living with his hands and his mind. Teaching and sharing along the way.
