Marco Garcia is the newest Service technician at LAVATEC. Based in Las Vegas, he has over 25 years of mechanical and technical experience working with industrial machinery.
Joining LAVATEC marks his return to the laundry world following a 10-year absence. After serving as an aircraft mechanic in the Honduran Air Force, Garcia moved to the United States and began working at Mission Industries in Nevada in 1997. The industrial laundry operation processes linen for Las Vegas area hotels, and he was responsible for installing, maintaining, and upgrading the equipment and training other workers.
Garcia spent 10 years there and another six as a service technician at Jensen USA before pivoting to similar positions with glass and metal manufacturers. He joined LAVATEC after working on industrial machines for one of the largest roofing contractors in the Las Vegas area since 2021.
“I learned early in my career that trying to install equipment in a third world country with the lack of proper tools can be very challenging,” said Garcia. “Working at Mission Industries helped me develop my skills because I learned how to troubleshoot. I was introduced to LAVATEC machines in 2000 and I’ve now come full circle to doing what I know best. I hope to retire working on the machines that made me who I am today.”
