Egon Hirschmann

Egon Hirschmann came to Acklin Stamping in 1929 as a time clerk in the Die Shop. A 1919 graduate of Purdue University, where he received a degree in Civil Engineering, Egon was transferred within six months to the production department. In a short period of time, Egon moved to the Standards Department and by 1947 had been promoted to that department's head. In that position Egon was responsible for studying the overall efficiency of the shop, estimating the amount of time needed to perform each new task and evaluating the cost effectiveness of each new order.

Egon had a particular interest in safety and in 1930 he helped to organize the first Shop Safety Program. For the next 15 years he served either as Chairman or Secretary of this program until a formal Safety Department was organized. Through his involvement in this organization Egon also had jurisdiction over the First Aid Department and was responsible for handling accident claims with the Ohio Industrial Commission.
