During the last few years, I have worked in Plant Relocation projects, dismantling production lines for shipment to Mexico and China (e.g. Majestic CFM, Kennedy Rd, Mississauga) working through PCM Industrial Solutions, and during the construction phase of a Glass Recycling plant (Unical Glass, Van Kirk Dr, Brampton) through Winters Technical Staffing Services. I also had a very brief assignment with Magna (MASSIV Automated Systems, Torbram Rd, Brampton) in July 2011, also through Winters. Recent work at Musashi Auto Parts in Arthur, Mississauga Seating Systems (MAGNA) in Mississauga and Bullet Trade Services based out of Guelph.

Through this recent economic recession, and because of pressing familial responsibilities, I elected a timely working sabbatical and relocation from Brampton to Kitchener, to assist in relocating both my aged parents (father passed in February 2015) & mentally disabled brother. Satisfied that my folks are now comfortable, & having also found myself a local address in Kitchener, I remain a resident in good standing since March 2011.

Finally, because of the events described above, you may plainly understand that I am now Very Eager and Highly Motivated to re-establish myself in the workforce again ASAP!

I am confident I can meet all of your requirements, as I am a seasoned, Licensed Industrial Millwright, with considerable MECHANICAL & ELECTRICAL skills, as well as maintenance and trades SUPERVISORY experience (around two years - mostly in the Automotive and Heavy Steel manufacturing industries). I have 10 years work experience with (two) Unionized companies, and 12 years as a Certified Millwright in Non-unionized environments. I am a proven excellent Electro-mechanical Troubleshooter, Maintenance Technician, Welder/Fitter and Machine Assembler/Builder.

Furthermore, I have three (3) years of College (Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanics, 1990; Mechanical Engineering Technician C.N.C., 1994 - 1995), several certificates of study and accomplishment, a registered proprietorship (sometimes used for contracting), and Safety Rep experience.

I have collaborated on projects and worked closely with engineers, machine designers, electricians, welder/fitters, and Production and Maintenance Management. I always contribute enthusiastically, respectfully, and professionally. My Communication Skills and Technical Writing abilities are augmented and accredited by two college programmes & published writing accomplishments in both print and electronic media.

Listed here are SOME of my more relevant and noteworthy tenures. Many not listed below are more generic millwright jobs where I was not in a [permanent] supervisory capacity, and include contract company sites.


1st. BONDED in the past at Kuehne & Nagel International Distribution; I have always remained bondable and trustworthy

2nd. Professional success with Production [Management] Support, Machine/Process Troubleshooting, Machine Building / Assembly, Overhaul, Maintenance and Repair, [Automated] Machine Design, as well as Maintenance Supervision and Technical Writing employed as a Millwright. CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT describes my history well

3rd. I am always respectful to people, and gain great personal satisfaction by working as a valued team member, enthusiastic to learn and teach new technologies and to contribute positively to company safety, quality, vision, and success.

4th. Modest published WRITING success is a hobby I continue to enjoy

5th. All my skills are highly transferable!!!

6th. I am eager and highly motivated to explore any opportunities you may consider me capable of, including entry-level positions, noting that I am available for any shift; and although I prefer Sundays off, I am FLEXIBLE to meet company requirements.

7th. Confident I can make an IMMEDIATE CONTRIBUTION to the smooth and proficient operation and success of your company, I thank you for your interest in advance. I look forward to coordinating a meeting with you, at your convenience.
