General Technicians - Building Services, Facilities

November 06, 2017

There are six individuals at Facilities that make up the General Technician team. They are willing and able to assist any of our shops whenever extra help is needed. All have helped us with numerous landscaping projects this past year including large tree removals, winter gravel cleanup, mowing, tree planting, and irrigation installation, among others. Scheduling and requesting their assistance is efficient and always customer-first driven. And it's not just that they show up for work and get the job done, it's their approach they take that is as much appreciated as anything else. A can-do attitude pervades them. It's apparent that they take pride in what they do no matter the task at hand. We call them the "A Team" for good reason and thought some well-deserved kudos should come their way. Thank you Gen Techs for all your assistance this past season!
