Hans and his teams in Hayward, Rocklin, San Jose & Reno manage the engineering efforts, by partnering with the design engineer community. This partnership makes for a seamless application of CHC products in complex heating, cooling, steam, and plumbing systems the industry uses in the built environment.

Hans landed in the Bay Area after attending university in the upper peninsula of Michigan in 1985. He spent his first 5 years in the bay area where any transplant would…near the water. He worked in the yachting industry, commissioning and repairing sailboats and delivering yachts up and down the coast. In 1990 Hans  moved his focus to the industrial and commercial industry, specializing in fluid handling, steam, hydronics, and plumbing. He has served on the board of the San Francisco chapter of ASPE for the past 9 years in various capacities and for the past three years has held the position of president.

Hans enjoys living in the Bay Area. The culture, history, and of course the weather makes it a perfect place for his hobbies including yacht racing, motorcycles, and bicycling. What he loves most though is his family, which includes his lovely wife, son, and daughter.
