Eric’s father, Teddy Dettemering, was one of the original founding owners of D&D Elevator. Serving today as D&D’s Modernization Manager. Eric started at D&D in 1989, at the age of 16, as a helper. His responsibilities within the company progressed from there, first as a maintenance mechanic, then as a repair mechanic and eventually modernization mechanic.
As the Modernization Supervisor, Eric works simultaneously with several teams of mechanics. At any given time during the day, he works alongside and communicates with architects, engineers, general contractors and suppliers. This continuous communication results in bringing jobs in on time. On every job site, safety of all personnel is his number one concern and he takes every opportunity to make sure everyone is working safely.
Eric truly enjoys working as a team with his coworkers in the modernization department, Nunzio Meccarillo and Deborah Yanno.
