Paul traveled 100,000 miles each year working these installations. Being the family oriented person that he is, Paul decided to shift into occupations that kept him closer to home.

Although working at Delta T Sales, Inc. still requires long days and nights, Paul mentioned, “It’s the best job I’ve ever had. I get the convenience of working from home while also getting out of the office to visit contractors.”

With more time on his hands, Paul enjoys time with his family, his two dogs, a Malamute and a Cho/Australian mix; and partakes in his hobbies, which include backcountry skiing, hiking and photography.

Since June of 2005, Paul has represented R-Plus Doors in Northern California. He’s a valuable employee according to Nick Stahl, R-Plus Doors Customer Service Manager, who says, “Paul’s the type of guy that’s always getting things done. He’s motivated, knowledgeable and a great guy that brings a lot to the R-Plus Doors team.”

Adjustable Hinge

A typical problem with walk-in cooler and freezer swing doors is over time they lose the proper alignment with the frame.
