Maintenance is crucial at Linde and Bill runs the department. On a given day he’s busy sending mechanics out on field repairs, setting up jobs with the right equipment and buying equipment at auctions. “If we don’t own the right machinery for a job, I go find the right equipment and rent it if necessary,” says Bill.
My job is to get us out in front of whatever problems we have and solve them. I enjoy it!
He started as a mechanic, worked through shop foreman and up from there. “There is always something different each day, a different fire to be put out,” says Bill.
