Carlos Ramirez Shop Foreman
Carlos is an integral part to the success of our daily operations. He is bilingual, an experienced mechanic and his role is to maintain and ensure the reliability of our equipment required in the field. His foreman role was preceded by both a cousin and brother and many of his family members, most of whom are craftsmen in one of the trades, continue to provide support on projects that require concrete, building and other land-based specialty components.
As shop foreman he maintains and repairs our work trucks, stationary and mobile power equipment, conducts OSHA safety compliance and testing of all dive equipment, Carlos also works closely with our project operation teams for assembly and loadout of field equipment and performs necessary upgrades, modifications and help with special tooling requirements as needed. He maintains equipment logs and performs all regulatory testing of our life-support diving equipment, performs repairs, provides operator training for crew personnel, and maintains our yard so it is both clean and safe.
