JJ Transport Staff Spotlight Questions
Name – Pat Schwalm
Pat was born and raised in Northern BC, in the city of Fort St. John. He got his start in the Oil Patch with L.A.N.D. Transport as a “swamper” on a 28 tonne Crane at the age of 18. He also did work on Service and Drilling Rigs.
After moving to Edmonton, he ran a crane for a pipe company. He then moved into the office work looking after dispatch and inventory for 8 years. Pat’s love for the Sunshine & Surf brought him and his wife back to the Lower Mainland on BC in 1995. Pat is the newest member of the JJ Transport family and we wish to extend him the warmest of welcomes!
