David Harper Celebrates 20 Years at Trane HVAC Parts & Supplies Chesapeake

David Harper, Parts Warehouse Associate for Damuth Trane is celebrating his 20-year company anniversary this month. David came to Damuth Trane from Southland Appliances where he spent 15 years as a Delivery Driver and Warehouse Associate. Needing more work-life balance, a friend of his and former associate at Damuth Trane encouraged David to apply and the rest is history.

Originally, David started out as a Delivery Driver for the Trane Parts Chesapeake warehouse and later became the Forklift Operator. Over the years he assumed more responsibilities and in 2014 became the Trane Parts Chesapeake Warehouse Associate. As the Parts Warehouse Associate and Back-up Delivery Driver for the Chesapeake Trane Parts Warehouse, David is responsible for meeting client needs and commitments through processing internal and external orders, loading and unloading inventory, warehouse administration, showroom stocking and merchandising, and all freight deliveries via truck.

When asked about David, Jesse White, Chesapeake Trane Parts Store Leader expressed: “The first word that came to mind when thinking of David reaching this milestone was dedication. David is dedicated to this company, he dedicates himself to his co-workers, and most of all to our clients. Thank you, David for all you have done to help our Parts Operation grow over the past 20 years! Your contributions and efforts are greatly appreciated!”

David has three adult children – Charles, Jeffrey and Brian and lives in Chesapeake, Virginia. When not at work, he enjoys relaxing, thrifting unique items and collectibles and baking. “It’s been a wonderful journey so far,” reflected David; “Throughout my career, Jesse has been one of the best team leaders I have ever had and has made my working experience here great! I am looking forward to staying with Damuth Trane through retirement.”
