Valley, Al *****


I am a highly motivated, fast learning, hardworking individual who takes great pride in my work. I have been in the automotive industry since November of 2009. My career began with Hanwha LLC. in Opelika, where I quickly worked my way up through the ranks to become an EPP trainer. Later, I was offered a job where Iā€™m currently employed with Trackmobile mobile railcar movers in LaGrange GA. Thus, I have studied and excelled in the assembly and operations of mobile hydraulics, pneumatics, and electrical functions of the machines we build. I have the ability to read and process data from hydraulic, pneumatic, and electrical blueprints and schematics. I have also spent the last 5 years aiding and assisting the maintenance supervisor, on a voluntary overtime basis, in repair and preventive maintenance of building equipment i.e. (air compressors, paint booth equipment, sprinkler systems, etc.) I have 16+ years of experience in the trade of welding. I began welding in high school and furthered my education in college. I possess the ability to weld carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum in all processes including: tig welding, mig welding, stick welding, flux core welding, as well as oxy acetylene welding.

Hanwha LLC. Ending wage was $14.25 per hour

Trackmobile current wage is $18.50 per hour

Thank You for your time,

Chris Driver

Welder/Fabricator / general assembly:

My duties at Trackmobile are to assemble mobile hydraulic components, as well as, pneumatic and electrical components as per blue print and customer specifications. Thus, I have the knowledge to read hydraulic, pneumatic, and electrical blue prints and schematics. If a purchase order specifies an option that requires fabrication and welding, I have to pull the correct prints and be able to fabricate and weld parts as per print specifications. On certain units, such as tier 4 interim and tier 4 final machines, that require knowledge of the tig welding process, on stainless steel I am also the person that does any and all tig welding for these machines. Likewise, I do the welding repair on any parts that come in and do not meet specifications. Duties also include voluntary and mandatory overtime to aid and assist the maintenance supervisor in maintaining building equipment i.e.: air compressors, oil pumps, pressure washers, sprinkler systems etc
