JOSH ADAMS, P.E.

FOUNDING PRINCIPAL

Apollo Engineering Design Group is owned and operated by Josh Adams, a native of Utah. After 8 years engineering products for companies such as Lockheed Martin, John Deere, S&S Worldwide, and the United States Air Force at Hill Air Force Base, Josh founded Apollo Engineering Design Group, LLC in 2014.

Josh has expertise in Mechanical Stress/Strain Analysis, Machine Design, Regulatory Compliance, Value Engineering, and Design for Manufacturability. He has a broad mechanical background with experience designing amusement rides, autonomous robots, heavy construction equipment, investment casting, and aircraft landing gear. He has experience designing test equipment, gauging test assets, and gathering and analyzing data. In addition, he has specific expertise with ASTM F24 and EN 13184 standards governing the design and engineering of amusement ride equipment. Josh is a licensed Professional Engineer and has overall responsibility for Apollo projects assuring technical accuracy, quality of deliverables, and customer satisfaction.

Matt joined Apollo Engineering in March 2017. His prior work has been extensively in processing and automation for a company focused on R&D ceramics. He worked as a mechanical engineer, process engineer, and production manager. Previous projects include bringing online a new first-of-its-kind manufacturing plant for ionically conductive ceramics. This included specifying, procuring, and qualifying various pieces of equipment across the entire facility. Matt also worked as a production manager for an electrically driven ceramic oxygen ceramic separation/purification system.

Matt graduated from Utah State University in 2005 with an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering and an emphasis in fluid dynamics. In addition to process engineering, he brings experience in machine vision, metrology, database development, and statistical analysis.

PARKER DAHL

ASSOCIATE MECHANICAL
ENGINEER

Parker joined Apollo Engineering in April 2016. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Utah State University. Before joining the Apollo team, Parker had previous work and design experience in the robotics, exercise equipment, and amusement ride industries. He is experienced with 3D modeling and design using software including SolidWorks, AutoCAD, Inventor, and SolidEdge. His experience also includes Finite Element Analysis (FEA), surface design, mechanical vehicle design, robotics, outdoor gear design, and plastic injection mold design. Parker is also an experienced metal fabricator with skills in welding and machining. This, along with a background in art and sculpture, gives Parker a unique ability to find a balance between manufacturability and aesthetics.

Lee became part of the Apollo Engineering team in June of 2017. In addition to his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Utah, Lee also received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Southern Utah University. Lee’s previous work experience is in 3D modeling, medical devices, quality, customer service and sales. He also has experience in Finite Element Analysis, design of experiments,statistical analysisand mathematical modeling in the Matlab and Simulink environments. Lee’s experience has given him code writing skill in several programming languages including C++, R, and Visual Basic.

LELAND RASMUSSEN

MECHANICAL DESIGNER

Currently an intern with Apollo, Leland is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering with a minor in Computer Science at Utah State University. He brings experience in 3D modeling using SolidWorks and has proven himself to be a valuable resource in design and drafting. His experience also includes plastic injection mold design, rugged hand-held computer design, formula 24 race car design, C++ programming, and Python programming. In addition to his commitment to his studies and Apollo, Leland currently serves on the Utah State University Microgravity Research Team where he develops orbital dynamic models using MATLAB and STK.

Whether you’re looking to outsource your engineering and design work or you’re a small business or individual with a great idea that needs engineering design, Apollo Engineering can help. With a licensed professional engineer on staff and a team with wide-ranging experience, we can design and engineer all or portions of products such as amusement ride equipment, overhead cranes, or anything requiring stress analysis. We use SolidWorks as our primary CAD software and employ ANSYS Workbench for all FEA (Finite Element Analysis) simulations.
