“I started working for SPT in 1999 as a trainee out of school. I worked my way into an apprenticeship and by the time I had completed my apprenticeship I had already become a sole charge operator for two off site operations run by SPT and obtained all my truck and trailer licenses. SPT has taught me the work ethic and skillset which has allowed me to progress through my career, and to move into different roles in the company. I believe there is no comparison to what SPT offers its employees by having the best brand trucks, equipment, facilities, people and support.”Sean Gilbert
