To Bradford Marine Human Resource Department. Re: Project Manager listed on your website or other possibility's.
I was looking for the 88 Broward that I contracted for a total refit a few years ago and just by chance, I came across your career post. As a licensed contractor and owner of a Florida Corporation since 1995, this procedure is relatively new to me.
Please forward this short intro. to Mr. Paul Engle, Ms. Kathleen Nitabach, and Mr. Thomas Krigger as well as your normal channels.
Please note: This is not a resume; this is a copy from my website www.WoodHighEnd.com
As a owner operator for the past twenty five years of Nordic Architectural Interior Design Corp. we mfg. fine wood work and delivered up and down the state of Florida ( Corp. name change 2017) I grew up in Old Howard Beach New York in the 50's. As a young man I did go to school to get a 30 Ton Commercial Fishing License later on in life attend Northrop Technology University in Inglewood California for Air & Power Plant License.
Afterwards as Journeyman I joined a Local Carpenters Union in Los Angeles California & later on in South Florida's Local 727 & 1509 in 1981 when the Housing Market was booming, I worked on the interior mill work and cabinetry on new home constitution for the owner of the L.A. Lakers then Carol Brunet and Sports Caster for L.A. Dodgers Vin Scully to name few.
Testimonials: Page 2 of 9
Thank you so much for creating the kitchen we have always sought. After living in our home for 27 years, we finally had decided to redo our kitchen and trusted you to carry this out. You spent many hours with Karl and I planning what we envisioned, making changes, adding to the ideas we came up with, and finalizing the items we asked for. The creative extra touches you added, the new doorway, the wooden window area, added so much to complete the look we wanted.
After hearing many hard luck stories of half finished projects of inferior workmanship it was critical we be able to trust that our kitchen would be completed as promised. Actually, the kitchen turned out better then promised as there were many extras added to make it exceptional.
We would definitely recommend you and Nordic for anyone who is contemplating a new kitchen. It was almost painless.
Barbra and Karl Sidman
