I began my journey in this industry with high school and Vo Tech. training in the ‘70s. I have held AWS ASME structural and pipe welding certifications since ‘81. I have master licenses in HVAC, plumbing, and gas. I have garnered approximately 40 years of experience in the skilled trades. I started working as a pipe fitter and welder. I then progressed to superintendent/foreman, a role in which I was charged with supervision of $3 million+ projects. I then advanced to project management and estimating. I am thankful for my position at Blauch Brothers, as I have found that the core values and culture of the organization are based on integrity and respect for employees, customers, and community.
