Foreman Focus Friday: Travis Getts

Posted March 17th 2017 (permalink)

At age 18, Travis Getts was facing down one of life’s greatest existential questions. HVAC or Plumbing? Not long after being confronted with this decision, he had a lucky encounter with a Local 32 Plumber which helped seal the deal. By 20, he started residential plumbing work and at 22 he joined the Union and served a 5-year apprenticeship. For 17 years now, Travis has been a proud plumber, the last 10 of which have been with Hermanson. And we are lucky to have him! Travis has a tremendous amount of passion for quality, cleanliness, and execution. This philosophy exudes Hermanson’s “Character... Read More


Foreman Focus Friday: Jack Angeline

It never ceases to amaze us how many great folks are second and third generations in the trades! Our wonderful Owner Direct Projects (ODP) Field Supervisor, Sheet Metal Foreman Jack Angeline represents generation #3 in his family! You see, Jack’s grandfather was a lifer in Local 66, as was his father, Jack Sr., who retired from Hermanson Company in 2014, having spent the last decade of his career with us. His mom also worked in the industry, so it’s not a surprise that our guy – Jack Jr. – chose a career in Sheet Metal. Jack has been at Hermanson Company... Read More

Fitting General Foreman Doug Price says that you don’t often hear a lot of cheering for steamfitters – but we are here today to give a resounding HUZZAH! for the spectacular work Doug does at Hermanson! And we’ll hear more about cheering for fitters later on… Doug is a Western Washington native based out of North Bend. Like many in the Pacific Northwest, he counts hunting, fishing and the Seahawks among his favorite hobbies. Additionally, Doug is a RUSH aficionado (you can’t go wrong with “Working Man!”) and an avid hiker – logging over 1,400 miles in each of the last... Read More


Foreman Focus Friday: George Shedd

Posted November 11th 2016 (permalink)

From multiple projects at Joint Base Lewis McChord to the University of Washington Bothell Discovery Hall, during his decade as a Hermanson Sheet Metal Foreman, George Shedd has led some of our most interesting projects! George comes to us from the small town of Hoquiam, Washington – home of the infamous SMACNA Crab Feed (what happens in Hoquiam stays in Hoquiam!) At the age of 19, George felt he was in need of a change. Friends in the Sheet Metal trade convinced him to give it a try, so he moved to Kirkland, signed up, tested and began his apprenticeship. That... Read More
