Also, lead mechanics at the shop will provide ongoing feedback to techs to help them grow.

  • What type of safety training is required?

    Safety is a priority for our company. Monthly OSHA topics are communicated to shops. A $250 annual bonus is given to a shop if they maintain one year of safe working conditions, meaning there is no lost production time due to an accident.

  • Can you describe how Techs work with and mentor younger techs?

    We are working to begin co-op programs with local schools. We are also involved in a driver apprentice program with a local school, and hopefully will be involved in more projects in the future.

  • Where do you see the shop in five years?

    We plan to be more involved with electric trucks, evolving our equipment and training to keep up with the new demand in our world. Safety & sustainability are at the core of our company, so we plan to continue fostering those in all the work we do.
