Bethel Sawmill Maintenance Engineer
Team Hancock Since May 2015Location: Bethel Sawmill
A Maine native, Drew grew up in Freeport and attended school there. Always building and tinkering, he worked as a carpenter during his summer vacations. Team Hancock in Bethel was very fortunate to add Drew Johnson to the roster in May of 2015 in a millwright position. Drew started full time after completing a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology through the University of Maine, Orono. Not only did Drew join the team with an excellent educational background, but he fit right into the Hancock culture and built admirable relationships with his teammates.
Drew quickly advanced in the company becoming an in-house Mechanical Engineer through hard work, perseverance, and an incredible ability to build anything put in front of him. Drew is a focused and uncritical listener who takes the necessary time to discuss tasks with all parties involved. His ability to involve operators into the process and learn the ins and outs of the job is first-class. Drew always makes time for his teammates and will teach or share his knowledge with others with no lack of detail!
As a maintenance engineer, Drew designs and fabricates equipment to help with production—his creative ability to design and build projects in-house with a conscience effort to minimize cost has been a tremendous asset to our business. We look forward to the future with Drew on the team!
