How did you get into welding?
Welding is an art – I was an art major in college. When my son turned 16, I decided to go back to college and do something for myself.
What is your favorite truck body?
I love all of them! I take great pride in building parts for all our truck bodies – knowing that I touch every truck body that we manufacture. I take my job seriously, and I want it to be perfect for our customers. We’re a family here at Wil-Ro, and there is genuine care for everyone that makes up our team. I’m not just a number – Wil-Ro wants me to succeed.
What makes Wil-Ro a great place to work?
They push the word “TEAM” to where everyone puts in the effort to help another team member out without hesitation. That means a lot to me with having a military background. We do not just say “TEAM” – we prove it. Wil-Ro as a team works hard to achieve this goal every day and that is what makes me enjoy my career here.
Who is your source of inspiration? Why?
My family is my source of inspiration to get up every morning to go and do what I enjoy. Wil-Ro is like a second family because I feel comfortable around the other team members who also enjoy what they do. The atmosphere at Wil-Ro contains joy and friendship, with a purpose to inspire others.
What is your favorite Wil-Ro body?
My favorite Wil-Ro truck body is the Skirted Hauler. When I first started here, each time I walked by one of those bodies, I thought, ‘Man I wish I was that good. I wish I could build that.’ As time went on, I started getting better. I was trained to work on them, and now I like them the best. I take a lot of pride in my work, which all of us do at Wil-Ro.
How did you get into welding?
My dad worked at Wil-Ro in the 1980s, so I’ve always known about the company – it’s always been a part of my life. We work on a farm so my dad was always welding something; building something. I picked up a lot of it from him.
What is your favorite Wil-Ro body and why?
My favorite body is the Heavy-Duty Platform body. I like how clean they look when they are finished. They are simple yet strong and versatile. I take pleasure in building them as well as seeing the finished product installed.
What do you love about your job?
I love what I build here. I relate to our product on a personal level. I enjoy fabricating the bodies that we make here because there are so many different options and styles to create.
