Travis Welle has over 20 years of engineering and construction experience. He earned a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from University of North Dakota and a Masters of Business Administration from University of Mary.
Travis began his engineering career at Bobcat Company, where he held various positions including manufacturing engineer, operations manager and Lean Six Sigma change agent. His responsibilities included equipment specification and implementation, production targets and quality control, and process and productivity improvements. Travis primarily focused on design and implementation of moving assembly lines, during which he utilized several Lean Six Sigma philosophies to increase output while simultaneously decreasing labor and square footage requirements.
After Bobcat, Travis worked as a consultant for Barr Engineering Co. There he was responsible for working on the world’s first full-scale coal drying project at Coal Creek Station, Great River Energy’s coal-fired power plant in Underwood, North Dakota. His responsibilities during the $300 million project included construction management, construction coordination, and serving as lead engineer for various mechanical systems’ check-out and start-up activities. Travis also served Enbridge Pipelines of North Dakota as project manager for station and tank containment systems, tank fire protection installations, and pipeline abandonment projects.
Prior to co-founding E3Homes, Travis joined MAC Heaters as director of engineering responsible for research and development of the company’s flameless and hydronic heaters. He is listed as inventor of both models, with patent number 9,228,760 for the former and patent pending for the latter. Travis would eventually become general manager for MAC, in which his responsibilities included overseeing operations, sales, service and engineering.
