Engineering firm finds another worker through ProAct
Jennifer Loney works in the production area at Resolution Engineering in Hudson.

Jennifer Loney places small electronic items into a programming unit that's connected to a laptop at Resolution Engineering in Hudson, Wis.

"Those are for smoke detectors, and this is the newest, the key fob," she said.  Resolution sells many types of electronics, including those that alert to glass window breakage for security systems.  ProAct helped her find the temporary job and the hope is that it will become permanent.

Assembly and disassembly are part of the routine for this job.  Loney even handles some "Help, I've fallen and can't get up" alert buttons.  Items are sometimes verified by weight before shippin g.

To make the labeling and product checks more efficient, she created her own dispenser and keypad brackets from LEGO bricks.

A floor supervisor has a substantial list each day that lays out what needs to be done, Loney explained.  She said her coworkers have been very helpful when she has questions.

"She is doing a great job there and we are very proud of her accomplishments," said job developer Traci Borchardt.

Loney studied graphic design at the Art Institute of Minneapolis.  She lives in River Falls.
