Here are some testimonials from a few of our employees!
I am proud to say that I work for a company that fosters growth and development. I started working for Avmax 4 years ago as a mechanic. Over those 4 years, I have grown with the company from a mechanic to a quality supervisor position and finally to a safety management position. Every day provides new and exciting challenges that I look forward to solving with the group of leaders we have here. This is truly an amazing company to work for if you want to grow as a person and like a challenge.
