Meet Eric Lupacckino! Eric’s career at AGS began almost 12 years ago and he’s been an integral part of our Fabrication team ever since. Eric’s always the first one in and he helps the team start off each day on a good note by opening the shop; and organizing tools, materials, paperwork, and schedules. Then he’s on to cutting aluminum and welding parts. Additionally, Eric is our resident U/L certified lighting expert, so he might be wiring up electrical components for an illuminated monolith or programing an LED control. He’s also learning how to use our CNC router and regularly QCs the products that come out of our Machining department.
“You always have to double-check!”
There are always new and exciting challenges that come with working at AGS, and that’s the part of his job that Eric likes best. He gets to move around the shop and come up with practical and novel ideas to make signage designs into a reality. Just this week he learned how to set up a CNC file to notch the tubes for an exterior project we’re currently working on.
Eric has many talents and interests outside of AGS, as well. If he weren’t a sign fabricator, he’d probably be a woodworker in a shop that made artistic and sculptural products. Custom treehouses, anyone? He’s also a music and movie aficionado, and if he could learn more about any topic, it would be sound-engineering and screenplay-writing.
Eric is father to seven-year-old Sully, and the two of them have taken up magnet fishing. Recently, they hit up the streams around their house with a heavy-duty magnet on a rod and reel to “fish” for metal objects. They haven’t caught anything big yet, but it’s only a matter of time until they get a good magnetic haul!
Eric has a friendly, easy-going nature and is a loyal and reliable employee. We’re so glad to have him as part of the AGS family!
