Huntersville, NC-- Max Daetwyler announced the appointment of Shawn Tiikkala to the position of Field Engineer for their Distillation and Cleaning Equipment. "Shawn has been with Daetwyler since 2006 and specializes in distillation and cleaning equipment," stated Dave Roey, pressroom equipment product manager. "He started in Daetwyler’s acclaimed Apprenticeship 2000 program as a high school senior learning all aspects of Daetwyler’s business and gaining valuable technical training. Upon completion of the program in 2010, Shawn was awarded a Journeyman welder/fabricator certificate. He is motivated by constant self improvement and relishes the opportunity to see new places and help Daetwyler’s customer base.
Most recently, Shawn helped a company that, for budgetary reasons, had not had service performed on their equipment in over 5 years. He went in and examined the equipment, determined the problems, and was able to bring their cleaning system's performance back into specification in a timely fashion. After Shawn was done, the customer no longer had to wash some parts by hand and the cost to dispose of unusable waste solvent was reduced dramatically."
