Eric worked for many years as a diesel mechanic and has worked in and around the construction industry for the last ten years. He was a refrigeration unit mechanic for a trucking company for four years, worked as a field mechanic for an excavation contractor for three years and turned wrenches for Freightliner of Olathe for five years. He drove a boom truck for United Rentals Trench Safety of Kansas City for nine years, delivering and placing street plates, trench boxes and shoring systems. Seeking new challenges, Eric went to work for Belger Cartage Service of Kansas City in 2016. He is a member of the Local 101 Operators’ Union and operates heavy equipment. Eric has an incredibly strong work ethic and an even stronger admiration for others that work hard at what they do.
