Q&As with Mickey Dahmoun
Mickey, you have been at AHT since 1997. What brought you to AHT and why do you continue to stay?
I was referred by an old friend from AHT Monroe (he was in the sales department). I really enjoy my job and I've loved what I’m doing every day since 1995. It's an honor to work for a company like Advanced Heat Treat Corp.
What roles have you held at AHT over the years?
I have held the following positions at AHT in Monroe, Michigan: First shift leader, production supervisor, lab technician, and assistant operations manager. I am currently the plasma nitriding technical manager.
How many languages do you speak?
I speak four languages currently: Arabic, French, Italian and English. I am still learning Spanish.
During my life, I have been in six nations as an immigrant and/or student: France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Greece and the USA. I was born in Morocco and have lived in the US since 1995.
Where did you go to college? What did you study?
I went to the University of Nimes in France for two years and then Montpelier University of Science to become a math teacher.
Tell us about a couple of the most interesting projects you’ve worked on over the years.
I have work on a lot of projects in the past 25 years - big and small gears, large stamping dies, aerospace jobs and more.

When you’re not working, how do you like to spend your free time?
I like to spend time with my wife and my youngest son, Marcel. I like fishing, gardening, and watching sports - especially soccer. (I’m a hard soccer fan of a team from Italy, As Roma.) I also enjoy long bike rides.

I was a soccer player for almost 25 years, playing in both the 2nd and 3rd division Moroccan Soccer League.
