Throughout the CoVid 19 pandemic a lot of Schad employees have stepped up to meet the demands of Schad’s clients involved in essential businesses such as power generation, water treatment, petroleum refining, and more. One group of Schad employees that has not missed a beat is Schad’s “fab shop crew.” Throughout the past months, Charles, Bret, Mike, and James have stayed safe while performing fabrication and pre-cast services that help to keep all of our lights on, water flowing, and cars on the road! For this reason, they are collectively, Schad’s May Employee of the Month!
