MacLean-Fogg is excited to sponsor the 2019 Formula SAE® in Michigan May 7th-11th. The International Formula SAE® program is a collegiate engineering design competition. The competition provides participants with the opportunity to enhance their engineering design and project management skills by applying learned classroom theories in a challenging competition. The engineering design goal for teams is to develop and construct a single-seat race car for the non-professional weekend autocross racer with the best overall package of design, construction, performance and cost.

MacLean-Fogg is the premier, worldwide supplier of value-added, engineered, and customer-focused solutions that leverage their material forming expertise in key product fields. Partnering with the Formula SAE® program allows MacLean-Fogg to interact with the engineering leaders of tomorrow.

Dave Lomasney, MacLean-Fogg Component Solutions Division President, stated, “Our involvement with the SAE provides us with an opportunity to meet with top engineering students and introduce them to MacLean-Fogg.”

Kyle Kapa is a Senior Application Engineer for MacLean-Fogg’s Component Solutions Division. He says, “As an SAE Formula alumnus, I can attest to how valuable the experience is for aspiring engineers. Not only does the competition allow students to take what they’ve learned in the classroom and apply it to a real-world application, but it also introduces students to the reality of timelines, specifications, costing, manufacturability and failures. The MacLean-Fogg sponsorship of the event is a great fit; the company culture of entrepreneurship and hands on engineering is the embodiment of the SAE Collegiate Design Series.”

Tyler Krohn, Product Manager for MacLean’s Network Solutions division says, “To say that I work for a company supporting the FSAE competitions is an honor. As a FSAE competition alumnus, I can say that participating in FSAE is the best real-world experience a student can have before starting their career.”
