SemiNex Fuels Expansion with New Hires


SemiNex Corporation announces new hires in Engineering and Marketing to support their growth in the long wavelength laser diode market. The appointments of Kenil Bhadani as Production Engineer and Stephanie Arnett as Commercial Specialist come in the advent of product innovations and expansion plans expected to launch in 2019.

A graduate of Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a Six Sigma Green Belt, Kenil Bhadani brings key experience in lean methodologies and statistical controls with his role as Production Engineer. He will manage and maintain the SemiNex production operations and drive improvements in efficiency, costs, quality, capacity and lead-times.

As Mechanical Design Engineer for Walker Magnetic, Kenil implemented a design program that specified products, Bill of Materials, overall configure price quote (CPQ) and worked according to ASME BTH-1-2014 standards to calculate tolerances of various magnets. While at Equifit in 2016, his research on the properties of Neoprene alternatives led to the successful redesign of their sports medicine boot and helped to eliminate allergic reactions.

“Kenil’s commitment to Total Quality Management principles is evident in his past work. He is well-equipped to dramatically improve our production capabilities so that customers experience better quality, performance and service,” said David Bean, SemiNex President.

Stephanie Arnett, who joins SemiNex with over 10 years of experience developing visual content and marketing strategies for brands, is responsible for raising the profile of SemiNex laser diodes as Commercial Specialist in charge of advertising and marketing efforts. Additionally, she works closely with the commercial sales team to ensure the best end to end experience for SemiNex customers.

Before working at SemiNex, Stephanie contracted with creative firms and tech companies in the Boston area on projects ranging from email marketing to virtual reality. As an early adopter of immersive photographic technology, she has produced over a hundred virtual tours and VR campaigns, including a 360º preview for a restaurant launch which generated over 100,000 views on social media.

“SemiNex is poised for a really exciting 2019. There’s a growing demand for eye-safe high power solutions as fully realized automotive LiDAR and machine vision systems are expected to be in the hands of consumers in the next few years,” Stephanie commented. “I’m thrilled to be a part of what is shaping up to be a game-changing technology.”
