The Western Shelter sales team is at the National Hurricane Conference in Orlando, Florida this week to unveil our latest shelter design: the Sentry Airframe. As our fastest deploying shelter yet this is an ideal system for the early hours of a hurricane response, and other applications where time is critical and manpower is limited.
The Western Shelter engineering team has been hard at work developing a revolutionary rapid response shelter system (pictured above from the air). This product was developed based on a request from a customer for a fast and light shelter that was still tough enough to handle adverse weather and repeated deployments.
Bryan has been our Director of Sales since November of 2016. He comes to us with a long history in sales, and a significant amount of experience in the shelter and industrial fabrics industries. We are very grateful for the wealth of knowledge and the positive attitude that he brings to our team at Western Shelter.
This year's extremely active flu season has caused a surge in patient loads at medical facilities across the United States. Grady Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia has responded to the need for additional capacity by calling in the Carolinas Med-1 Mobile Emergency Room. This self-contained facility includes a 53 ft ER trailer with a custom boot that allows it to be complexed with Western Shelters.
Jorge Ortiz has been with Western Shelter for five years, and currently serves as our Sales Manager for Latin America and the Caribbean. He is based out of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and was personally impacted by Hurricane Maria. We greatly admire his work ethic and the commitment to his community that he displayed in the wake of the storm as he continued to serve his customers without reliable electricity or communications. It was only natural that we would feature him in our first team member profile.
