The Mechanical Assembler will work with products which are most commonly used to provide power for electric submersible pumps in oil and gas wells. The drills and pumps that drill oil from the ground go down miles deep. ITT makes electrical connectors to power the pumps (sort of like extension cords for pumps as they get drilled deeper and deeper into the earth).

The Assembler will use hand tools and measuring instruments; read drawings & work instructions to strip cables and materials into final products.


• Stripping cables: meaning taking the cable, unwrapping the rubber exterior, wearing safety gloves and using a knife to cut away insulation, putting on a contact and repeating the process.

• Measuring cables and cutting them to specifications.

• They will not be lifting regularly – they may need to pick up things that weigh 25 lbs. The job is more stripping cable, make a measurements, working at a station. This company has lots of ergonomics to avoid lifting.

• Use hand tools and measuring devices (ruler, tape measure, diagonal cutters, crimpers, etc.) to measure, cut, and mold materials as required.

• Interpret and perform tasks according to engineering blue prints, drawings and work instructions

• Perform visual inspection of work performed for defects


• The Mechanical Assemblers will be working in this company's cable cutting warehouse helping cut cable, strip wires and breaking down large wooden reels the cable comes in on. They will also help with packaging. They need to be on their feet all day and have the ability to lift 35 lbs. if required. This is not a job that requires a lot of lifting- they have a lot of ergonomics. They only lift if they need to move product to another station.

They are cutting anywhere from 1”-1.5” inch cables to specification. They received the cables on large wheels (like large spools of string the size of a dinner table) that are delivered to them on a forklift. They follow work instructions that specify what they need to do. They might cut the reels to 50 feet, 100 feet, or whatever the customer order dictates. Once the reel is empty they break the wheel down.
