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.
