Meet Matthew Gilbert – our Corporate Technical Manager!
As Corporate Technical Manager, he uses mechanical knowledge to prevent critical downtime for industrial facilities.
Matthew joined Jay Industrial in May 2007 as a Vibration Analyst. Here, in some of the toughest environments, he learned the significance of shaft alignments and mechanical installations. Learning Motor Circuit Evaluation (MCE testing), Vibration Analysis, Rotor Balancing and Infrared Testing that has allowed him to take on some of his biggest challenges to date. Some of his accomplishments include attaining his Level 1 Thermography certificate, Category III Vibration Analyst Certificate and more recently, the birth of his two daughters – Olivia Katherine (2) and Isabella Grace (6 months).
Matthew got his work ethic early in life where he started his first construction job at 12 years old. Matthew’s family has been in the home building business for over 50 years. His baseball career allowed him to win 4 high school state championships. From there, he went on to coach a state championship team as an assistant varsity coach – while also taking the head coaching position for the Junior varsity. Through these accomplishments, Matt has learned the value of teamwork, dedication, and a drive to achieve the goals he sets out for in life. He thanks his dad for this motivation, as he served in the US Army and coached his high school baseball teams, pushing him to be the leader he is today.
