Meet Trey John!

We love bringing new members onto our team, and earlier this year, we had the pleasure of welcoming Trey John as a jurisdictional inspector. Since then, he’s also earned a great accomplishment: obtaining the National Board IS Commission. Congratulations, Trey! 

Read on to learn more about him.

BPC: How did you hear about BPC?

Trey: I actually found out about BPC through a current employee in a Facebook Group for ex-Navy Nukes.

BPC: What did you do before coming on board with us?

Trey: I’ve been with BPC since February 2023, but prior to BPC, I was a locomotive commissioning and warranty technician with Siemens Mobility and before that, a MMN1 ELT in the Navy.

BPC: What kind of objects will you be  inspecting?

Trey: I’ll be inspecting boilers and pressure vessels of all types in locations ranging from churches to chemical and manufacturing plants.

BPC: What are some interesting things you’ve seen during your training?

Trey: When I was in the Chicago area, I was able to see a HRT boiler from 1930. It wasn’t operational anymore, but it was very interesting to see. I’ve also climbed to the top of a huge crane in a shipyard to inspect a pressure vessel. 

Many of the buildings I’ve been to are extremely old and the architecture is amazing to see. There are a lot of interesting things about this job.

BPC: What do you enjoy most about working here?

Trey: I really enjoy the fact that every day is different – I never know what I’ll see or who I’ll meet. It keeps my days interesting and non-repetitive. 

On top of that, we have an amazing team. If I have a question about anything, I know someone is willing and able to help. The amount of support I have is by far my favorite part of the company.

BPC: What do you think sets us apart from our competitors?

Trey: BPC is more of a family than an employer in my eyes. Every supervisor, inspector and office support staff I’ve interacted with has been nothing short of amazing. Everyone asks about family and how things are going, they get excited and congratulate us on our victories – like obtaining the National Board IS Commission – and guide us in the right direction when things are unclear. I can’t say enough good about how awesome every single person is here and I’m proud to be a part of this team!

Thanks so much, Trey, for hitting the ground running. People like you are what make BPC great!
