Employee Spotlight:  Gale Reeser

Position:  Warehouse Manager/CDL Driver

He may not have been the welder installing your steam service or the service technician who repaired your roof top equipment, but behind the scenes at James CRAFT & Son, the chances are pretty good that Gale Reeser played a major role in your project. Whether or not you’re a foreman, superintendent, purchasing clerk, CEO or custodial service person, Gale is helping you accomplish your work. If you are a customer or

vendor, Gale probably took receipt of your equipment and materials and he most likely loaded it on the delivery truck and drove it to your location too. The biggest key to our success at James CRAFT & Son is our people.
