Contact William Dryden:

What is your job title, and what does that position entail?
I am an Applications Technician; I assemble most of the jobs that come through the production area. From building custom cables to bolting motors to actuators, if you get one of our assembly’s, I am most likely the one who put it together.

How long have you worked at Olympus, where did you come from?
I have been working for Olympus since April 2011. I started working here part time while going to high school.

What do you like best about working at Olympus?
Olympus has the most relaxed, family oriented staff I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of. I also really like that I can see and have a conversation with the owner of Olympus on a weekly basis, compared to larger companies that don’t know what the owner even looks like.

What was your first job ever?
My first job ever was for a small heating and AC company counting inventory and sweeping floors.

Describe some of your hobbies – what do you like to do outside of work?
On my days off I like to ride horses, play guitar and work on my family farm.
