After twenty-nine years of service and dedication at Nationwide Boiler, shop superintendent Woody Lohse is retiring.

Woody started out at Nationwide on January 14, 1985 as a mechanic pipe fitter, following work as a service technician and testing technician in the shop. Finally, he was promoted to shop superintendent in 1992 and has been running the shop ever since. Prior to joining the Nationwide crew, he worked at Wilkinson, another rental company for lifting equipment, and a manufacturer of amusement park rides.

Woody has contributed to Nationwide’s success in many ways and is a man of many talents. He works well with everyone, from customers to vendors to colleagues and everyone in between, and he will always be known for his knowledge of the trade and ability to fix just about anything. His ambition and drive motivated others, and the generosity of his time and skills extended to all, helping out whenever he was needed.

Woody intends to keep busy with multiple projects throughout his retirement. Instead of building boilers, he will be rebuilding his 1940 Chevrolet 4-door Deluxe Sedan, something he has been planning to do for 41 years. Along with his car project, he plans to keep busy with home renovations, trips to the lake, and drinking plenty of wine with good food and friends.

Nationwide Boiler would like to extend our gratitude to Woody for his many years of hard work and dedication. Everyone here at Nationwide wishes Woody the best as his new journey in life unfolds. He will truly be missed.

Nationwide Boiler continues to break the company’s safety record and has recently achieved over 3,000 days without a lost time accident, as of April 19, 2013.  This is the longest length of time Nationwide has gone without an accident in the company’s over forty-five year history.

As a member of  ISNetworld and PICS supplier pre-qualification systems, Nationwide Boiler’s esteemed safety record is a valuable asset for bidding projects that require high standards in safety and compliance, prominently seen in projects including refineries, chemical processing plants and government facilities.  Prospective customers can be assured that employees of Nationwide Boiler will comply with strict safety standards and that those standards will be followed while on a customer job site.  In addition, Nationwide Boiler’s Experience Modification Rate (EMR), a benchmark measure used for insurance premium discounts that compare worker compensation claims to other employers of similar size operating in the same type of business, continues to be reduced due to the company’s record of zero lost time accidents.

Keep up the good work Nationwide and let's continue to play it safe on the job.
