Joe, Research and Development

“Gopher is open to innovation, new ideas and new ways of doing things.“

Joe joined Gopher Resource in 2015 as a metallurgist. Today, he is director of research and development, leading a fully staffed R&D lab. What drew him to our company was its willingness to innovate. “Chatting with company leadership during my interview, it was clear they were open to new ideas. I saw a chance to meaningfully contribute to the field of recycling process technology.”

Joe’s R&D team helps shape and execute Gopher Resource’s pipeline of technology development projects. The team also supports operations and a variety of non-R&D projects in Eagan and Tampa. He sees our company’s forward-looking commitment as a big plus.

Gopher Resource is asking challenging questions of itself and is hungry to remain an industry leading battery recycler. That kind of thinking makes successful technology rollout that much easier.”
