I'll do whatever it takes to get the job done and done the correct and accurate way. I do not shortcut anything I enjoy what I do. That's another reason I'm good at what I do. I've had hours after hours of tappy safe training and lock out tag out I've worked at weyhyser, pennington, Rock tenn, georgia pacific, international paper mills them plants was 90% percent of my millwright work and BF Goodrich, hannah steel, Nucor, Mercedes through out the years I've done alot of shutdowns in the past 18 years. But where ever my job has in-store for me they will not be let down nor regret hireing me . A man is only as good as his word.
