Tony Gatta
Senior Mechanical Engineer

Tony started out studying physics in college but switched to mechanical engineering when he realized he was more interested in the how of it than the why of it.

He excels at creative problem-solving, preferably complicated by a hefty list of constraints, including but not limited to cost, weight, strength, timeframe, and budget. “Some people like Sudoku,” he says. “I like engineering problems and figuring out how to use the physical world to our advantage.” He is particularly skilled in analysis, simulation, prototyping, and collaboration.

Tony earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Physics from Drexel University. Before coming to Bresslergroup, he worked in electric engineering, process engineering for a large manufacturer, and ran his own prototype shop. 

In addition to his diverse work experience, he has moved around a lot, living on both U.S. coasts and in between. Tony currently lives in Longano, a small town in Central Italy, where he’s often tinkering in his workshop populated with products, mechanisms, widgets, and doohickeys of his own invention.
