Kale was hired as someone fresh into the workforce with little experience in our field. Kale approached challenges with a vengeance, and we worked him along side various mentors to round out his experience. Like a sponge he soaked up all the knowledge we could throw at him as we put him through training of our in-house Line Locator Program.

Attention to detail has Kale producing top notch locator drawings with little change as they are put through our quality management process. He has pride in his abilities and demonstrates leadership by helping others learn the occupation.

Kale has proven to be a valuable employee with a bright future here at 3-D. Currently specializing in big inch pipeline work we continue to work with Kale to fully develop his potential.
