Dear Sirs:

I’m a maintenance and engineering professional with over 30 years experience in the semiconductor, industrial, and commercial sectors. My experience in machine design, industrial automation, facilities, electronic, and mechanical repair covers many diverse industries. Having a strong background in electronic/electrical control systems coupled with excellent abilities in other phases of maintenance (mechanical, pneumatic, high vacuum, process control, fluidic, HVAC, etc),
I would appreciate your reviewing my qualifications for positions you may have available. 

In previous positions my contributions have resulted in increased equipment uptime and a substantial reduction in outside vendor service visits leading to increased productivity and reduced costs. I’m versed in most areas of industrial technology and can apply this knowledge and experience to any process or equipment I encounter. 

I pride myself on my technical skills and strive to constantly improving them, both in the disciplines I’m familiar with and new ones. In addition to my background in all phases of maintenance I also possess supervisory and management experience. I would welcome the opportunity to be of service to your firm. Thank you for your consideration.
