Expansion to Spectrum’s Manufacturing Team

Spectrum adds an additional Electrical Technician to its manufacturing team.  With over 40 years of experience, Joe Cancilla, will complement Spectrum’s reputation for quality products.  Joe’s training began with the U.S. Air Force where he spent 20 years overseas in Europe and then retired from Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City.  Afterward, Joe spent an additional 20 years working on aviation testing equipment.   Spectrum considers Joe to be an essential, highly skilled addition to its production staff.

Spectrum’s Engineering Team


Spectrum is pleased to introduce our newest intern from Cleveland State University, Andrew Gadelsayed, who is pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering.  He resides in Mentor-on-the Lake and is a first-generation American whose roots are from Egypt.

Andrew has a significant background in that he has already obtained a four-year degree in Engineering Physics from John Carroll University.  During Andrew’s junior year at JCU, he realized that his heart was in a more hands-on profession rather than the conceptual, research-based field of Engineering Physics.  Moving towards a degree in Mechanical Engineering is the correct move for Andrew and Spectrum is fortunate to have him on our team.
