Our Mission

Mechdyne Enables Discovery...

Mechdyne partners with organizations to remove roadblocks, improving productivity and profitability. Our innovative solutions and services enable discovery, collaboration, and enhanced decision-making.

We are relentless about researching and developing better ways to solve the business challenges presented by world-leading organizations. We help drive innovation in industries ranging from manufacturing, energy, healthcare, and higher education to the government and military.

Who We Are

Mechdyne Corporation was founded in 1996 by Iowa State University (ISU) graduates, Dr. Chris Clover, Jim Gruening, and Kurt Hoffmeister after honing their skills at ISU’s Virtual Reality Applications Center.  Mechdyne’s very first project focused on creating a virtual reality (VR) firefighting simulator for the U.S. Navy.  

While VR is still an important and growing piece of the company’s portfolio, Mechdyne has greatly expanded its capabilities. It was, in fact, enterprise VR clients who presented Mechdyne with non-VR challenges. By taking the idea of working with clients collaboratively and applying new ideas to a wide variety of challenging and costly obstacles, Mechdyne has created tools and services that allow organizations and industries to explore undiscovered areas and uncover new insights and solutions. Over time, this led to the formation of new business units; AV & VR Solutions, AV Services, IT Services, Software Services, Engineered Display Structures and Custom Manufacturing, and Network Infrastructure to offer a wide variety of separate or combined solutions.

Mechdyne Community Contribution program

Community Contribution

It is every person’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what one takes out of it. – Albert Einstein

At Mechdyne, we recognize that the success we’ve achieved comes from the investment our teammates, partners and communities have made in us.  We’ve been given an important gift that can never be paid back.  That’s why we are committed to paying it forward.

We take a holistic approach to give back to the communities where we live and work in three distinct yet interconnected ways: our People, our Partners, and our Profits. Through these efforts, we strive to make a positive impact throughout the world.

Giving Back Through Our People
  • One of our core values is “contribution and responsibility to the communities in which we live.” We’re passionate about the belief that those that have much, should give much in return. We not only encourage our teammates to volunteer their time within their communities, but we also reward them for it. Volunteerism is an element in all of our career ladders and we take it a step further to pay our teammates for volunteer hours every year.
Initiatives We Support
Giving Back Through Our Partners
  • Our focus has always been to “Remove Obstacles to Insight and Understanding.” We seek partners that are pursuing innovative breakthroughs and forward-thinking change in the world and use our talents to create solutions for some of the most challenging problems. We’re proud to have been chosen to partner on many projects over the years that improve lives, reduce waste and carbon footprints, and measure and mitigate risks for millions.
Application Process
