At TMH, our employees are like family. In today's post, we'd like to introduce you to two more members of our family: Livermore Service Manager Tony Gonzalez and Fresno Forklift Field Technician Dan Hunt.
Tony Gonzalez, Service Manager, Livermore
TMHNC employee since 1992
For my first job, I was a cook at a KFC in San Jose, CA way back when I was 16. I’ve been with TMH for such a long period of time now that I hardly remember what it is like to work somewhere else!
In my freetime, I enjoy grilling food, enjoying a glass of wine, strumming my guitar, listening to live music, watching my son play football or baseball, but most of all being around my family. We like to plan at least one huge family trip per year and will usually end up on a Caribbean cruise, or somewhere in Hawaii or Mexico.
What I like about my job... I like being able to provide a solution to an answer that others have been trying to solve. Whether it is how to repair a forklift, or how to resolve a bill dispute. It’s the feeling of accomplishment that keeps me motivated.
One thing that I hear from newer forklift technicians is that the amount of training that we offer is second to none! TMH is very team-oriented and a goal-driven place to work with a family type atmosphere. My co-workers are willing to put in the extra effort when it is crunch time to get things done! We like to recognize our talented personnel and recruit from within. That being said, there's always room for advancement.

Mild, Medium or Spicy? I like my food spicy, not overly hot… just spicy.
Dan Hunt, Forklift Field Technician, Fresno
TMHNC employee since 1999
My first job was throwing newspapers for the Fresno Bee. I first went to work for TMH on December 30, 1999 a day before Y2K when we thought the computers were all going to crash.
In my freetime, I enjoy going to my twins' football games on Friday nights and Fresno State games on Saturday. In the winter I like trap shooting, and in the spring and summer I'm into boating.
What I like about my job...I like meeting new people and solving problems. Doing something different everyday makes my day go by fast.Favorite movie: Forest Gump
Mild, Medium or Spicy?It's going to be mild these days. I like spicy, it doesn't like me.
