While Hayden McLaughlin is new to his current role, he’s been a part of the Romar team since 2020. Hayden first joined us for an internship whilst studying Mechanical Engineering at Macquarie University.
He was introduced to Romar by Morgan Wagner, a Manufacturing Engineer and fellow Macquarie graduate and Romar intern.
When Hayden completed his 3-month internship, we were delighted to offer him a full-time role as Manufacturing Engineer.
Now working in production, Hayden oversees manufacturing procedures and practices to ensure we deliver smooth and seamless commercial manufacturing solutions for the aerospace, mining, medical and defence sectors. As an avid problem solver, he fits right in.
“I have a distinct passion for engineering. I’ve always really liked getting my hands dirty and I particularly enjoy solving problems.”
In addition to a good challenge, Hayden loves to learn – and at Romar, he has a unique opportunity to experience a wide variety of our manufacturing specialities including additive manufacturing, elastomers, micromolding, silicone manufacturing and medical device manufacturing.”
“I really enjoy that I am constantly learning here. My role gives me the opportunity to interact with different parts of the company, to get experience in a whole range of areas, and to learn from an incredible group of people. The team here has a wealth of knowledge across engineering, advanced manufacturing and materials.”
Outside work, Hayden loves his downtime, whether it’s watching Netflix with friends, or playing a game of baseball. Teamwork is something Hayden values, both personally and professionally – and it’s one reason he loves being part of Romar.
“It’s really satisfying to be able to work on problems in my job, and to be part of such an efficient team. It’s a tight-knit group and everyone shares the same values, works hard and works well together. I feel like I really belong here and can make a contribution, which is great.”
