Loren Simons was also a manufacturing engineer. The one thing I do remember was his being involved with was the Bihler presses. Bihlers formed bushings not by brute force but by cams.

Loren hired in about the same time as the 1979 UAW Local 925’s strike against Federal-Mogul. This was the first such strike against the Federal-Mogul St. Johns plant.

Loren is the last person that I’m aware of that was still working sometimes at the Federal-Mogul building. That puzzles me, but it may very well be mop-up duty although I can’t believe they left anything that important behind.

The last I heard he had transferred to F-M’s Greenville plant.
