Here are some of the comments we received on him from his fellow Team Members for G.E.M. Going the Extra Mile:

Nathan Guest
Nathan has taken the lead on many projects since Richard has been going to school part time. He has a great attitude and he welcomes the challenge.

Nathan Guest
I see Nathan digging deep into projects. He seems to like new things and wants to help. He has passion for his work and is a great contributing Team Member.

Nathan Guest
I recently started working more with Nathan. He is very receptive to feed back good and bad. I had to come up with drawings for the GA Binder he stepped up and helped until the last day getting me what I needed.

Nathan Guest
Nathan thinks big picture and is able to discern proper judgement in tough situations. He is good at interacting with customers and represents the company well.

Nathan Guest
I had a couple of projects which were time sensitive and I needed 3D images straight away – Nathan jumped right in and got me the items I needed and the images worked out well in the projects.

Nominated by his fellow Peabody Team Members – Congratulations to Jimmy Avila who works in our Custom Engineered Tank Department, on being February 2019 G.E.M. Winner!

Here are some of the comments we received on him from his fellow Team Members for G.E.M. Going the Extra Mile:

Jimmy Avila
Good Worker, Teaches his co-workers how to do their job. Helps when someone needs him. He is very familiar with a lot of tools and teaches others how to use them.

Jimmy Avila
Jimmy is the quiet one. He looks for areas where he can help and gets the job done. Alex was out for 2 weeks, then Frank was out on vacation. Jimmy took on the responsibility of completing the work in that department. After that he looked for other areas to help specifically in the molding dept.

Jimmy Avila
Jimmy will ask me (Cheryl) if I need anything while I’m doing the vending machines. He will take the empty boxes and throw them away. Then offer to put things back inside the closet. He also thanks me when I help him with his Insurance, safety and on One point.. He is a really nice guy and likes to help people.

Jimmy Avila
Frank & Alex have both been out for the last few months. Jimmy always steps up when needed. He works well doing any task. Chemtreat hoses, retiming heads & dancers, installing fittings. Anything you ask he will do.

Jimmy Avila
In this month, Jimmy had to step up and take charge of that department when it was short staffed. He managed to complete the projects he had when both Frank and Alex were out.

Water Tower Cell Site Concealment

By | Telecom | No Comments
Water Tower Cell Site Concealment

Several years ago Peabody Engineering delivered two amazing Water Tower Cell Site Concealments to the Piedras Blancas Light Station in San Simeon, California. The PBLSA requested that Peabody create a replica of the original wooden water tower that once stood at the light station which was originally constructed in 1908.

The contractor hired to build the water tower used recycled redwood to construct the two-tiered tower structure. On the first platform they placed the smaller of the two fiberglass water tanks – 9’ tall x 9’ in diameter with an open top – and then continued constructing the tower. When the upper platform was finished, they placed the larger fiberglass water tank on top – 12’ tall x 12’6” in diameter with a fiberglass cover designed to look like an old metal tank lid.

Since the tower construction and tank installation has been completed, we have visited the PBLS and even WE are in awe of how realistic these two replica tanks turned out! We are proud of the design and fabrication of these two tanks and so is our customer.

Next time you’re looking for great weekend getaway, take a trip up the coast and visit this historical location.

What’s So Great About Christmas?

By | General | No Comments


Our office will be closed:
Christmas Hours: Dec 24th and 25th, 2018
New Years Hours: Dec 31, 2018 and Jan 1, 2019

We are rapidly winding up year 2018 and we continue to strive, grow and manufacture the best quality of Peabody Tanks and Tank Related Products. Remember last year when we introduced you to our 2 new Rotational Molding Machines? Since then we have dramatically increased production and because we have the larger Molding Machine (that would be the machine we call Alpha) we are able to increase the sizes of several of our Peabody Tanks.

The strength of who and what we do is based on a foundation of you our customers of what your wants and needs are. We will continue to produce exceptional Peabody Products and develop new products based on your feedback. Whether you call us, or email us or see us at a Tradeshow, we want to know how you use our Peabody Tanks and as a person in your industry what modifications or enhancements you think would be a benefit to our tanks.


So What’s so great about Christmas anyway?

Somewhere, our society has lost the focus of what Christmas is supposed to be celebrating. It is the celebration of a very important birthday, namely God’s only son, Jesus Christ. He was the greatest gift ever to all of mankind.

Santa Claus is seemingly omnipresent wherever you go, Christmas music is on the radio and your inbox is overflowing with cyber deals and doorbuster offers at all the retailers. Many of you already have hung your lights, bought and trimmed your tree, hung your stockings and chances are, there’s a quart of Egg Nog in the fridge.

The kids are looking forward to 2 or 3 weeks off for “Winter Break” and plans for visiting relatives are set. You’re hoping that your Christmas Bonus is large enough to cover all of the things you’ve already charged on the credit card and you’re looking forward to a couple of long and restful weekends of football, family and comfort food…..Read the full Peabody Engineering Christmas Letter by clicking here.
