It’s the middle of summer and it’s been a hot season for our crew with heatwaves and high humidity. We appreciate everyone’s efforts to stay safe and productive through the summer. This month, we’re spotlighting three of our integral shop and on-site workers. Each brings a unique set of skills and expertise to every project. We appreciate all of your efforts, team. Read about last month’s team spotlights here. Let’s get to know our July Meet the Team Monday crew!
Welder, Oswaldo Vasquez
Oswaldo joined Gramercy 14 years ago through his brother-in-law, Franklin Marin. Born in Ecuador, Oswaldo came to the states ready to work and learn a new career. He began his career with Gramercy by working in the shop, processing job site orders, assisting with the transportation of equipment, and spending significant time apprenticing with Arturo, our head welder. All that hard work paid off. Oswaldo enjoys welding and has become a very experienced and talented fabricator. When he’s not working. he likes to relax at home with his family.
Thank you Oswaldo, for all of your hard work and dedication!

Nahun has been with Gramercy since 2006. He joined the Gramercy team through his brother-in-law, Frankie Marin, who we’ll be meeting soon!. Nahun was working in a seafood restaurant at the time, but wanted a steady career that he could grow with.
