Angel Perez, a welder at the Pasadena, Texas pipe fabrication facility has worked with Turner Industries for seven years. Growing up, Angel lived down the road from our Pasadena pipe fabrication facility and passed it every day going to and from school. In high school, he began taking welding classes and decided to make welding his career. Shortly after graduation, the Turner office sign he had passed so many times before became his destination when he joined the Turner family. Angel’s wife, Lisa, also works at Turner. She is an engineering clerk.
Angel started out, like many others do, as a tacker. He quickly advanced to a TIG welder and then to his current level as a combo welder. Earning his welding position is one of Angel’s personal highlights. He is proud to be part of the Turner team and is well respected by his peers. “Turner is my career. All other jobs prior were just jobs. I enjoy knowing that people I work with trust me enough to help them with work and safety. They know I am a reliable co-worker,” said Angel.
“Angel is a perfect example of an upcoming employee taking the opportunities Turner Industries has to offer and becoming a top craftsman. We appreciate his hard work and dedication,” said Apolonio Fonseca, pipe fabrication superintendent.
