Position PLC Technician
Position requires not only plc troubleshooting, but numerous other maintenance work, including mechanical repairs to the equipment from the pumps that supply the spring water to the treatment of said water. It also includes working on the injection machines, blow molds and filling, capping and labeling machines. I also work on the facility equipment such as the high pressure air compressors, and chiller. Work with outside contractors is also involved as is working with IT personnel in keeping the internal lan system running. Left because of the distance from home and being asked to do more mechanical work and less electrical/PLC tasks. Also new job was much closer to home and not an hour away.
