“Just wanted to drop you a quick email of thanks. Yesterday we had a leak in a sprinkler line at our warehouse. In the morning the drip started out very slowly, hardly noticeable. By late afternoon the “barely noticeable” drip turned into a constant drip. It had me concerned that the leak could be turning into a major problem. Again, it was late afternoon when I called into Summit. I talked with Cory and he indicated that all of the technicians were currently working on other jobs and not in the vicinity of our warehouse. However, he did say that Nate was finishing up a project but his shift was coming to an end. Cory said that he’d call Nate to see what he could do. Cory called me back in a few minutes to say that he was able to connect with Nate and that Nate would be at our facility within a 1/2 hour. Nate showed up at our warehouse within a 1/2 hour. He had a smile on his face and was so polite. He went to work immediately on the problem. The leak was not a simple fix but Nate handled it easily. The zone that was affected needed to be completely drained, a custom pipe need to be installed where the leak was located and then refill the zone that was drained. I know that Nate had a long day - starting early that morning. So adding another couple of hours to his day to fix our leak was beyond “the call of duty!” I appreciated Nate’s willingness to do whatever it took to get the job completed quickly and done right. Please give Nate my sincere thanks! Thank you! Dean Ritter Automotive Parts Headquarters, Inc. ”
