Staker Parson Invites Utah Diesel Technician Pathways Students to Job Shadow Day at Ogden Location

February 13, 2019


Ogden, UT – February 10, 2019 – Staker Parson Materials & Construction, A CRH Company, hosted the first round of students attending Utah Diesel Technician Pathways (UDTP) Program in northern Utah. Bracken, Jaxon, Jaden, and Jordon met at the Ogden equipment shop to job-shadow Brian Barker, a Mechanic at Staker Parson Materials & Construction for over 15 years, to share some of his experience working in the industry. The students were able to gain hands-on experience with some of the equipment used in the industry and get a taste of what it’s like to be part of the Staker Parson family.

“It’s great to be able to bring the students to our shop and see their eyes just light up with excitement. We were able to show them some of our equipment and the normal repairs we make. I think they really enjoyed seeing all the different things we have to offer,” Brian Barker stated. “We have a great shop, up to date equipment, new technology, and we train people. What more could you ask for?”

Staker Parson Materials & Construction takes pride in being the leader in quality building materials while being a very active member of the community. “With all the UDTP partners involved, students have the chance to experience, first hand, what it’s like to work in different businesses with different equipment. Diesel mechanics encompasses so many different things, from trains to trucks, as well as heavy equipment. If you crave variety, that’s what we do in our shop,” Joe Allen, Equipment Manager for Northern Utah, stated.

Staker Parson Materials & Construction is one of many local companies involved in the Utah Diesel Technician Pathways program in Northern Utah. We are thrilled to be the first of many job-shadow opportunities in the UDTP and we look forward to many more visits by students.

The goal is to improve the quality of Technicians we have in our company and in the industry. This is a direct example of the Staker Parson team, putting our Guiding Principle, Make Businesses Better, to work in our community.

The Utah Diesel Technician Pathways started in January 2019 and schools plan on getting to schools in April of 2019. More information can be found on their website at dieselpathways.com or on their Facebook page facebook.com/utahdieseltech.
