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 truck body?

The landscape truck body – because I build them. When I spot one of our trucks on the road or in-action, it’s such a unique feeling knowing that I created this product, and that sense of pride stays with me.

What do you like about your job?

I love welding and learning from all phases of the production cycle. I’ve worked in every stage of building the landscape bodies and enjoy the challenge of fabricating the final assembly – it’s like a puzzle.

What makes Wil-Ro different?

I think Wil-Ro stands out from the crowd because we put quality over quantity. We build beds that are built to last. Our beds stand the test of time. It is not uncommon at all to see our beds still on the road from the 80’s and 90’s whereas others would be retired. We might not be the biggest operation or put out the most bodies, but I guarantee every bed that leaves this factory is built to the standards of the fabricator as if it was their own personal truck body.

What is your favorite Wil-Ro body and why?

My favorite Wil-Ro body is the Wil-Ro Hauler. It looks good on any truck you can put it on. It looks especially good on lifted or customized trucks. It is simple yet durable. It can be set up for virtually any application and you cannot go wrong with the classy and timeless look and functionality of the Wil-Ro Hauler.

What do you love most about your job at Wil-Ro?

Every day I come into a workplace that makes you feel included and blessed. If I am wanting to learn something new, then I can. I have learned so many valuable things while working here and I am continuing to learn new skills daily.
