Trained as an engineer, Rockwell had several positions in the auto-parts manufacturing industry prior to becoming president of the entity now known as Rockwell International. Though the company was successful as an auto-parts maker, Rockwell expanded it into many other industrial equipment areas, growing it into one of the world' s largest manufacturers of measurement and control equipment.
