Meet David Bullen, one of BPC’s newest inspectors. In August, David completed the BPC Apprentice Program and obtained his National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors Commission. He’s excited to serve our clients and we are thrilled to have him as part of our team!
Learn more about David and why he’s glad to be part of the BPC team.
BPC: What is your role at BPC and how long have you been working here?
I am a Commissioned Inspector at BPC. I have been working for BPC since last October, going through their apprentice program. I became fully certified in August 2020. I first heard about BPC through Tom Keirnan, the East Regional Supervisor at BPC.
BPC: What kind of objects are you typically inspecting?
I typically inspect boilers that are used for hot water heating and supply for facilities, air tanks that are used for storage and general services, and CO2 tanks used in the foodservice industry.
BPC: What are some interesting things you have seen on the job?
The types of places I visit can vary drastically. I have seen the insides of large paper mill facilities and have inspected places like Virginia State Parks.
BPC: What did you do career-wise before coming to BPC?
Before BPC, I worked for several years at a company that did contract work for the Navy and Coast Guard doing lube oil and hydraulic systems flushes on their ships and equipment.
BPC: What do you enjoy most about working here?
I enjoy all the different locations I get to visit daily and building relationships with our customer base.
BPC: What do you think sets BPC apart from your competitors?
Our commitment to our customers and the professionalism we conduct ourselves with separates us from our competitors.
BPC: How did it feel to be invested in by BPC?
I feel very honored and lucky to have been invested in by BPC. I would like to thank Tom Kiernan, East Regional Supervisor, and Darryl Royal, Sr., Senior Inspector, who I trained under for my 800 hours of practical experience needed for commission. I’m grateful for all the knowledge they both offered and continue to offer me.
BPC: Tell us about your family and life outside of work.
Outside of work, I enjoy hiking and surfing, refinishing old furniture, and spending time with my dog, Miller.
BPC is glad to have David join our team. Thank you for all you do, David!
