The TORQUEPOWER tradition continues

The TORQUEPOWER tradition continues as Jessie Fuenzalida, another generation, learns the ropes at Torquepower.  Jessies’ grandfather Hector Fuenzalida worked at Torquepower in the mid-1990s. When he first immigrated from Chile to Australia years before Jessie was born, Hector settled into a little Italian workshop in Melbourne (an Italian girlfriend helped with language training!) then a stint with Isuzu before coming to work with the Torquepower team.
At four years old, Jessie also emigrated, and connected closely to his Granddad. “ As a child, I watched my grandfather in his shed, helped him out, and took a real interest in truck mechanics. I live at his house just two minutes down the road while I’m here doing work experience. Though he is semi-retired, today Granddad is pulling the gear box out of his own truck! ”
“I am studying Cylinder Head Reconditioning at Acacia Ridge TAFE. Once the course is done, I want an apprenticeship. Later I’d like to work on heavy diesel mining equipment . The best thing about work experience at Torquepower is taking cylinder heads apart and servicing them. I am really enjoying learning from the people here. They are easy to get along, and hands on work beats studying.”
“On the weekends, I help set up for festivals with my mate. I genuinely enjoy setting up music, lighting and generators . Once the work is done, you can really relax. Another hobby is gardening, really; any work with my hands is good. “ Good people, good products. www.torquepower.com 0732778277 170 Beatty Road, ARCHERFIELD.
