Position Overview

During the first 6 to 12 months, some 90% of the workload is devoted to drafting work and learning our business. Afterward, 60% of the workload is devoted to drafting work. The remainder is spent dealing with facility and equipment related issues, such as research, preparation of requests for quotation for fixed (e.g. shelving, racks, etc.) and mobile (e.g. reach trucks, pallet jacks, etc.) equipment, analyzing proposals, doing on-site measurements of facilities, calculating building capacities, etc.
