Reference: Chris Farquhar
To whom it may concern:
I am providing my personal recommendation for Chris Farquhar as candidate for employment in the field of Nondestructive Testing. Chris worked for X-R-I Testing for many years in the various inspection methods.
Chris was always quick to volunteer to help any facility that needed help. Chris is flexible, willing to work until the job was complete. On many occasions Chris volunteered to be a resource to our customers and work alongside their inspection personnel and was recognized by the customer as one of the most productive and accurate team members.
Chris would be an asset for your company and has my recommendation.

Sincerely,
Kirk Thams
Former President\Owner of X-R-I Testing
