RedGuard Field Service Technicians provide fantastic customer service, and take pride in resolving customer requests in a safe, timely and quality manner. Each technician is provided with a company service vehicle and all of the tools and equipment needed for the maintenance and repair of company assets, including blast-resistant, modular buildings. Each working day provides new opportunities and experiences – a Field Service Technician could be dispatched to a customer site to resolve a faulty HVAC system, and then to repair a door that will not open safely at another. A service visit could take a couple of hours, or require a week or more at a customer site. Our Field Service Technicians appreciate the challenging work environment, and know how to remain calm and collected under pressure.
Technology plays a vital role in the service department to ensure that every customer request is logged, managed, and a technician dispatched with all the necessary tools and equipment to resolve the request the first time.
