Exceeding the Vision 2017

As the year winds down, we want to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, vendors and employees for making SWS a success. We have had an eventful year, full of growth and fine-tuning.  Over the past year we have expanded the amount of employees at both the Spokane and Tacoma locations and have expanded our sales territory to Oregon. Also, the transition of changing our name from Solid Waste Systems to SWS Equipment was a huge undertaking, with months of preparation. Our growth over the past year is based on our commitment to our customers and serving their needs by continually moving forward. We are excited to see what 2018 has in store for SWS, our customers, our vendors and our employees.

 

Featured Employee – Brandon

Brandon Brubaker has been with SWS for about 2 years and was originally hired to handle all accounts payable. Around 6 months ago he transitioned into our purchasing and inventory position. Brandon graduated from Boise State

University with a finance degree. When he came  to SWS, the street waste and sewer industries, as well as the part we play as a distributor, were growing and changing.  He has taken on those challenges with adaptation and his own professional growth.

Brandon spent the first 4 years of his life in California before his family settled in Post Falls.  He moved to Boise while attending college and after graduating, came back to Post Falls. When he was little, he dreamed of being a professional baseball player.

When Brandon isn’t working, he is busy enjoying the outdoors of north Idaho. He plays pretty much every sport, as well as spending time snowboarding in the winter and wake-boarding and surfing during the summer.

When asked what the best advice he has given someone was, his response was “stay in school. School is super important if you want to be successful”.

Brandon came to SWS with a great attitude and a great work ethic. His hard work and reliability, as well as his positive personality, helps make SWS a great company. When asked what Brandon likes most about SWS, he replied “How family oriented it is. Everyone gets along with everyone”.  SWS is grateful to have such a dedicated person on the team.
