a) Tell us something about your business that no one knows.  

During the blockage of the Suez canal by the grounded ship ‘Ever Given’ in 2021, it was an ESCO cutter head that was used to dredge around the ship’s prow that was wedged against the canal banks.  ESCO to the rescue! 

b) If your company wrote an autobiography, what would the title be?  
You’re Never Too Old to Change – This division started as a company in 1913, this facility started up in 1963 and it has constantly been actively trying to improve itself since it’s inception.  Whether it is safety, throughput, process capability, or any other company trait, we have regularly strived to find “the better way.

c) What has been the best piece of advice you’ve been given?  
Whether it’s answering an email, addressing a colleague or doing any task in our daily work, NEVER RESPOND WHEN YOU ARE ANGRY!   Always take a breathe, wait 15 minutes and then respond from your rational mind to whatever the situation is that represented a provocation or rapid heartbeat moment.  Also true for personal relationships away from work.
