FS Construction Services Alicia Easter Inventory employee profile

Employee Profile: Alicia Easter – Inventory

The last two months we have enjoyed the opportunity to focus on Alicia Easter and discuss some of the incredible work she does for us here at FS Construction Services. And while her coworkers like to say that she does “everything!” around the office, we are just going to focus on one final aspect of her job duties this month: inventory.

Inventory Key Part of Alicia Easter’s Position


Depending on who you are, “inventory” may sound like an exciting task ahead or it might sound like a unique punishment designed specifically for you. Fortunately for us, Alicia’s team-first attitude, her overall insight into our general operations, and her detail-oriented mind, make her an ideal choice to assist with our inventory process.

Alicia works with Linde (formerly Praxair) on orders and inventory. This dovetails nicely with her customer service responsibilities, where Alicia is able to help make efficient product exchanges for customers when needed. Additionally, Alicia provides a significant amount of overall in-person inventory management. So not only is she helping account for individual projects’ costs and timelines, she is helping us account for what items are in our warehouse and what might need to be ordered next.

While this part of the job is behind-the-scenes, the impact to our customers is undeniable. But for Alicia, all of these individual responsibilities work towards the same goal at the end of the day. Or as she says, “Customer service is all about listening to what the need is and helping address it.”

We are grateful to have Alicia helping us in both visible and less visible ways. Because it ultimately all helps us provide the best possible experience for our customers, and we couldn’t imagine anyone who embodies that better than Alicia Easter.

If you have any questions related to buildings, grain systems, garage doors, or other construction needs, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.

The Right Kind of Gas for the Job

We provide a lot of services at FS Construction Services. Some of them are pretty obvious, like building construction or seed system installation. Some of them, like painting or roofing, apply to a wide range of possible applications, both big and small. However, one of our services can be a little harder to spot because, frankly, it’s invisible. Don’t let that fool you though, because it’s one of the important things we get to do.

Gateway FS Construction Services supplies the gas you need

Our partnership with Praxair allows us to supply a number of different gases for a number of different industries. Whether it’s manufacturing, chemicals, or textiles, we are able to provide oxygen, acetylene, argon, carbon dioxide, and even lesser-known gases. With our access to multiple products as well as our leasing and exchange and delivery services, you can get right down to acquiring the gas you need quickly and without a mountain of work in front of you.

While it may be a forgotten or an unusual kind of product, it’s not hard to see how going without the gas you need can have serious and far-reaching ramifications. We have done everything we can to make the process as painless and as fast as possible, ensuring that, no matter your industry, you can continue to provide the services you do without a hiccup or delay.

If you have any questions about our leasing and exchanges services, if you are curious about some of the other, less traditional gases we are able to supply, or if you have any other question related to our role as a Praxair supplier, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.
