Mountain Safety Research® (MSR®), a manufacturer of premium, high-performance outdoor equipment since 1969, has named Evan Williams Mechanical Design Engineer. In this role, Williams will design products and develop technology for outdoor, global health, and military applications.

Williams joins MSR after nearly two years of employment as Mechanical Product Development Engineer at PATH, the world leader in driving global health innovation.

A key development partner for MSR, PATH provides MSR with critical field expertise and channels for product testing and implementation.

The MSR product and development team draws on nearly 50 years of experience and works closely with military research agencies and world-class development partners to produce and customize integrated systems that meet basic and essential worldwide needs: food, water, and shelter.

Future technologies in development at MSR that Evan will contribute to include personal desalination devices to create drinking water from seawater, low-cost handwashing stations for remote communities, and high-volume chlorine makers for sanitation in health clinics, among others.
