Service technicians travel to nearly every corner of the US and Canada equipped to provide turnkey solutions.

Technicians that have earned the title of «Senior Service Technician» have long-term experience at ELPRO, along with self-motivation, organization and management skills.
«A senior service technician must arrive on site, make a plan for the installation and execute it,” Lang said. “The senior technician must also possess leadership skills in order to help train and organize the junior technicians.»
