Meet The Owner – Dan Cowher
Fleet maintenance and service is in Dan’s DNA.
Dan’s commitment to fleet maintenance began early in life growing up on the family farm. As the oldest of eight children and having a father that was a heavy truck/heavy equipment mechanic he learned the importance of care for the environment, service, and proper equipment operation. By age 13, Dan was repairing and operating farm equipment.
Dan joined the US Navy Seabees as a Construction Mechanic immediately after he graduated high school. He spent 5 years in the Seabees managing teams of mechanics, ensuring work was top quality and building his leadership skills.
After the Navy, Ryder of Boston hired Dan as a truck mechanic. Three years later Dan shifted his career to the refuse industry and managed a fleet of long haul tractor/trailers and heavy equipment for an independent company in Massachusetts.
Dan has since built a solid reputation in the refuse industry and held leadership positions at Casella Waste Systems, Inc., Rutland, VT, Advanced Disposal, Ponte Vedra, FL, Veolia Environmental Services North America Solid Waste, Inc. Milwaukee, WI, ReNewable Resources Unlimited, MA, and Waste Management, Inc.
This experience as a truck mechanic, a General Manager, a Fleet Director, a VP of Fleet Maintenance and a Vice President of Operations has now come full circle with the launch of Environmental Equipment Sales & Service LLC.
Dan and his team at Environmental Equipment Sales & Service LLC understand the importance of running the right equipment and the need for strong parts & service support. They bring to Sutton, Central Massachusetts and New England proven operational experience and they are committed to be the best new and used refuse truck dealership in New England!
Dan, his wife Colleen and two sons, Rory and Shawn live in Merrimac, MA. He and the team at Environmental Equipment Sales & Service LLC will put fleet knowledge, purchasing, compliance, reporting, maintenance expertise and 34 years of Waste Management Industry experience to work for you.
