Jul 27, 2018 /prREACH/ -- Coastal Hydraulics, who specializes in fabrication, assembly, repair, refurbishment, rebuilding, maintenance, design, and replacement sales of hydraulic and pneumatic systems, has expanded to keep up with the increasing repeat business.
Coastal Hydraulics experienced several months of record revenue, completion of a number of sizable marine industry projects, expansion of our geographic reach, and a series of staff additions. With the introduction of HVOF industrial coating capabilities two years ago and recent ramp-up in the volume of customers served, Coastal Hydraulics is implementing a more sophisticated work order scheduling software system to speed the pace of operations and better ensure repair completions within their customers’ turnaround expectations.
Further, increased work order volumes required that they grow the staff, and thus were pleased to welcome several new members to the team. The account and project management group expanded with the addition of Scott Raynor, Account Executive. Scott’s prior experience includes more than fifteen years of hydraulic component and repair sales, and his primary geographic responsibilities for Coastal Hydraulics are for the Pee Dee region of South Carolina as well as Eastern North Carolina and beyond.
Les Aubrey was appointed the new Senior Hydraulics Mechanic. Les has logged nearly twenty years of experience in hydraulic repair, service, maintenance, and parts sourcing. Daniel Campbell, Hydraulics Mechanic, joined the Coastal Hydraulics organization in the Fall of 2017. He is a certified welder and hydraulics mechanic who has many years of experience serving steel mills, offshore oil rigs, shipyards and other demanding industry segments. Howie Newman came to Coastal Hydraulics recently as a part-time pick-up and delivery specialist. After starting his career in the United States Navy, Howie went on to successfully serve in a series of management positions, including roles with the Boeing Company. Curtis Dickens, Technical Services Manager, is the most recent addition. He is tasked with supporting the customers and Account Executives with complex troubleshooting, hydraulic and pneumatic systems design, and the proper application of HVOF industrial coatings. Prior to joining Coastal Hydraulics, Curtis devoted twenty years toward managing the maintenance of C-17, C-130, C-5A/B and C-141B aircraft for the United States Air Force. Michael Brown, Coastal Hydraulics’ Operations Manager, recently celebrated 17 years of service. His dedication was rewarded not long ago with an expanded role to include oversight for all work orders and shop management. Further, Michael has been instrumental in the development of the new scheduling system. He’s exceptionally customer-focused and will continue to be pivotal to Coastal Hydraulics’ success. The changes that have taken place and those which are being planned for Coastal Hydraulics are certain to improve our business processes, workflows, and most importantly our customers’ experiences. Coastal Hydraulics looks forward to a prosperous 2018 and sincerely appreciate the confidence our customers and business partners place in them. Visit www.coastalhydraulics.net to learn more
