Mr. Lance Hubbard and Mr. Eric Wyche were recognized as the Employees of the Month for March. Their efforts as pipefitters have been influential to the organization and the AIT team. Mr. Hubbard and Mr. Wyche established our pipe shop in Virginia Beach, which greatly increased our repair capability. Their willingness to take on any additional tasks, such as assisting in conducting tubing training, captures their positive attitude and work ethic. Additionally, they supported the Reading warehouse move of all materials and equipment and deserve to be recognized for their efforts.
Mr. Edwin Berger, Quality Assurance Inspector, is the Continental Tide Employee of the Month for the month of January. Mr. Berger’s ongoing efforts in the Quality Assurance (QA) department have been crucial to the organization in terms of development, implementation and continual improvement. Mr. Berger has many years of ship repair and shipboard experience, especially in the structural and welding field. His willingness to take on any additional tasks, even those tasks outside of his usual duties, captures his work ethic and determination. These, among other attributes, make Mr. Berger a very valuable part of Continental Tide's QA team.
Christopher Leinbach worked as an engineering intern at our Reading, PA office during the first three weeks in January. During that time, he was very involved in a prototype development project within the Engineering Department, overseen by one of our lead engineers, Edward Kabak. The project was to prototype, test, and document a technique for cleaning and preserving overboard discharge drains aboard some US Navy vessels.
Christopher’s contributions were many, including modifying the prototype apparatus, purchasing some of the materials used for the testing, documenting the parts and tools used, writing the draft procedure, and writing the engineering report that outlined the equipment and lessons learned.
We would like to acknowledge all of Christopher’s contributions and congratulate him on a job well done!

His tireless effort in the daily support of the Continental Tide team conducting repair work is valuable to the overall accomplishments of the Logistics Department. Great work Matt!
