Welding Training Provides A World Full of Opportunities

“STANLEY Oil & Gas and CRC-Evans help local communities by providing the kids with a way out from the norm… showing them there are other options. And that means a lot to me.” – Giovanne Lopez


Throughout his life, Giovanne Lopez has learned the importance that education and advocacy can play in achieving a successful future.

We are proud of Giovanne who today works as a Welding Engineering Manager for CRC-Evans, part of STANLEY Oil & Gas. Giovanne's personal challenges and experiences gives him an appreciation of the enormous difference that welding training and encouragement can make to young people finding their way into the world of employment – particularly those in more remote or less affluent geographical areas.
