Gavin started his career as an apprentice aircraft mechanic with QANTAS engineering in 2004. On completion he accepted a position in the Auxillary Power Unit Overhaul Department. Moving on to Solar Turbines in 2008, Gavin spent the next 5 years working as an overhaul technician in the Melbourne workshop. Here he gained invaluable overhaul experience on wide range of Solar compressor and turbine products.
During his later years in the workshop Gavin carried out numerous field support assignments. These included assisting and leading in turbine and compressor exchanges, in field compressor overhauls and specializing in Dry Gas Seal replacement. After transitioning into field service with Solar Turbines in 2014, Gavin expanded his knowledge and skills to include the many aspects of turbine servicing, focusing on the mechanical aspects. With his good customer interaction and expertise in gas compressor overhaul, Gavin developed strong relationships with many industry customers. Gavin will bring a valuable set of sound mechanical skills to the AJSS team.
