Eric Steiger

Fleet and Shop Manager

Eric started with VPS in early 2016 overseeing all shop and equipment repairs and maintenance. He has a strong background in mechanical and hydraulic applications and received his degree from Cal Poly in Agricultural Systems Management. He oversees a team of mechanics and applies unique fabrication and customization experience to the diverse equipment pool at VPS. Previously he spent time in Yuba City as the Production Manager for Orchard Machinery Corporation (OMC), one of the industry’s leading agricultural equipment fabricators. In joining VPS, Eric accepted the challenge of managing one of their core operation units...while allowing him to move back to his hometown. When he is not splitting tractors and customizing sprayers, Eric enjoys camping at Pozo, building off-road vehicles and breaking off-road vehicles.
