Mouser engineers a cool holiday party

🕐 1 min read

How cool was your company holiday party? Well, Mansfield-based Mouser Electronics Inc. turned cool up to 11. The global distributor of semiconductors and electronic components welcomed celebrity engineer Grant Imahara, best known for his role on TV’s Mythbusters, to its annual Employee Holiday Party at Mouser’s corporate campus.

Imahara joined in the festivities and met with many employees as part of our kick-off to the Empowering Innovation Together campaign. During the festivities, Imahara took time to give personal autographs, take photos and visit Mouser’s vast warehouse and distribution center. “The Empowering Innovation collaboration emphasizes Mouser’s commitment to the engineering community in bringing them the newest products and information to inspire new designs,” said Glenn Smith, Mouser Electronics’ president and CEO. “We provide the newest products and technologies, and Grant provides the inspiration and engineering expertise.”

The man who helped the Mythbusters’ team destroy lots of stuff in the interests of science over the years said he was no stranger to Mouser. “I’ve been a customer for over 20 years,” Imahara said . “They’ve always been friendly and professional and I’m thrilled to now be a part of the Mouser team. Mouser and Imahara are inviting the engineering community on a journey to Empower Innovation. Mouser is creating a series of “webisode” videos with Imahara as the host, featuring unique content highlighting innovative, creative engineers worldwide. Well known in the engineering community, Imahara has paired his engineering expertise with a Hollywood TV and film career. In addition to his roles on Mythbusters and Battlebots, Imahara is the inventor behind many famous robotic characters – including the Star Wars prequel-era R2-D2, The Late Late Show’s Craig Ferguson sidekick – Geoff Peterson, the talking robot, and the rhythmic arms on the modern day Energizer Bunny.
