Field Service Technician Profile
It's not an exaggeration to say that Ed Zimmer is an electrical field service industry veteran. In high school, he took electronics classes at Max Hayes on the West Side of Cleveland. Then, he spent four years in the Air Force, and worked at HIRT Combustion Engineers in California from 1966 until the late 1980s. After returning to Cleveland to care for his aging parents, Ed began working for Neundorfer in 1989 and has been with the company ever since.
"When I started at Neundorfer, I didn't know anything about coal or precipitators," Ed recalls. "But, I did know about electrical controls."
For Ed, the most rewarding thing about field service work is the opportunity to troubleshoot and fix equipment that improves the environment.
"What I enjoy most about my work is problem-solving," Ed notes. "That's the main thing I do, and I've always enjoyed it. I don't look at problems as a negative thing. If I can solve the problem, that's a good thing."
