Alan was a Nuclear Machinist Mate Engineering Laboratory Technician, in the Navy. He was intrigued about becoming a Cryogenics Technician for Airgas and contributes his highly specialized job and Navy training to developing the skills he needed for his current role. Alan conducts the installation for Cryogenic bulk tanks and the piping and equipment for Airgas locations and customer sites. His duties range from directing the crane operator, to trouble shooting equipment, and developing on the spot solutions. Alan finds an empty pad of concrete in the morning and by the end of the day he has a bulk Cryogenic system in place. Alan notes his daily reward is seeing his finished product.
