To Whom it may concern:
I would appreciate the opportunity to be considered for the position of “Maintenance Manager”.
My present employer is with Partners Alliance as a contractor working as a Melt Shop Maintenance Supervisor with Universal Stainless Steel and Alloy Products in Bridgeville, PA. Previously, I worked with Westinghouse Electric as a contractor performing Production Supervision for the GICP Safety Components of Nuclear Reactor Power Generation Stations since February 1, 2016. I had also been working with AK Steel as a Maintenance Planner Engineer for the Hot Strip Mill in Mansfield, Ohio, and just prior to this I was employed with Severstal Warren / RG Steel, Warren since August, 1999, and had been serving as an Electrical Maintenance Shift Manager\Planner at the 56” Hot Strip Mill. I have been very active in all phases of the maintenance program with “above expectations” ratings on all my annual evaluations. I have been involved in various cost savings projects. We were laid off due to the company filing bankruptcy. Prior to the lay-off, I was promoted as the Electrical Maintenance Planner of 56” Hot Strip where I planned all levels of electrical work performed in our department and answered trouble calls on a 24 hr. call basis. I was also involved in various upgrade projects ie: installation of VFD drives for our descale pump motors. This project would have resulted in an annual savings in electric usage of approximately $1.35 million, plus additional mechanical and production advantages.
I have been working with the GE 90/70, GE 90/30, Allen Bradley, Cegelec Alspa 80-MT systems and the GE Series Six PLC’s. I was instrumental in the developing and teaching MTE’s step- by- step procedures to make common changes in the program with a favorable success rate.
I am well versed with high voltage switchgear, 480 – 13,800 volts, and carry a valid certification to work on these. I have done various levels of troubleshooting in these systems, and believe and practice root /cause analysis in all delay and trouble faults in both maintenance and safety issues.
I am consistent in promoting the company’s Safety program. I was a member of the department’s safety committee. I also am familiar and working with the Lean Management system. I have worked with various Maintenance Planning systems ie: Mapcon, Teams, SAP and MP2 and others.
I am a good, solid candidate and believe that I will be a great addition to your company.
