Adam Gavrun – Rental Manager


Submitted By: Kevin Callahan


On Friday October 9th at 2:23pm I received a call from Mark Kirby,  Corporate Purchasing Manager with EG Industries in Ormond Beach, FL.


Mark had good news,  he was ready to move forward on replacing some lease expiration lifts and also had a need to increase the fleet size in their Ormond Beach facility by an additional 2 lifts.  In fact,  he requested we bring 2 rental lifts over by no later than 9am the next day which was a Saturday!


I immediately called Adam Gavrun to see what we could do to assist this customer.  Adam was quickly able to locate 2 matching rental units in our Orlando facility and made a call to Brian Trabue to verify the units were ready for duty.  While I was still on the phone with Adam he had verified the availability of the rentals and was putting together a plan of action to get these 2 trucks to the customer.


What is truly amazing is that Adam was on his way out the door at approximately the same time this was happening to take his expecting wife to a doctor’s appointment!  Adam made follow up phone calls on his drive home and made sure the project was a success.


Thanks also goes out to the team in Orlando who made sure the trucks were ready for duty and found a local carrier who could make the delivery happen on time!
