Mike Swanson, Welcome to The SVL Team!
SVL is excited to welcome Mike Swanson, the newest aftermarket specialist on our world-class SVL Parts team.
Mike is originally from Duluth, Minnesota with a background in commercial and residential wiring. His first job in the industry was inside sales for an industrial automation and electric motor control company. His expertise in sourcing parts once came in handy to solve a problem with Duluth’s most iconic landmark.
“At a previous job in Duluth, the lift bridge had problems operating and the workers in charge of fixing it came to my workplace as an emergency for parts,” Mike recalls. “I was able to figure out a solution to the problem and get them what they needed to get the lift bridge working that day. In Duluth, the lift bridge is vital to how the city works. It felt good to be able to figure out the problem, solution, and get the correct parts, all in a few hours.”
When he’s not on the job, Mike is a musician, playing mostly classic rock, blues, and metal. He loves anything outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, and kayaking. He has a cabin up north and spends time doing lots of trail walking and cutting down trees for firewood.
We’re thrilled to have you here, Mike!
