Spotlight on the Maintenance Division

From basic preventative maintenance all the way to acquiring vehicles and machinery, the CDL Maintenance department is always one of the busiest departments in the complex. There are currently more than 300 vehicles in CDL’s fleet and Mark Blome and his 9 person crew are responsible for every one of them.
