Mike was a true modular novice when first introduced to the industry in 1996. He worked on the assembly line , frame shop and spent weekends as a member of a set crew team, learning many valuable lessons. He was always interested in the design aspect and transitioned into the engineering department. He was promoted to Engineering Manager and Q.C. manager for a startup company from 2003 until 2014 . It was during this time he learned the demand for AutoCAD customization to deliver accurate speed to market plans and drawings, realized the increased need in detailed shop drawings and was fortunate to work along some true “legends” in the industry. In his spare time, he was able to study the code compliance side of the business and he currently holds a couple of I.C.C certificates ( International Code Council ) which also aid’s in our plan reviews and designs.
