DVIDS – News – The IMMA supervisor of LRC-Italy enjoys a dynamic working environment, supporting the community
Name: Alessandro Frugani
Job title: Production control supervisor of installation equipment maintenance activity
Affected: Logistics Readiness Center-Italy, 405th Army Field Support Brigade
Location: Caserma Ederle, Vicenza, Italy
Experience: I served with LRC-Italy for about a year and a half. Before that I worked at the Caserma Ederle post office for about 5 months, and before that I was an entrepreneur businessman. Relatively speaking, I am a new employee of the military. It is definitely a new experience and a great challenge.
Birthplace: Malo, Italy
Family: I have been married to my wife, Ketti, for 10 years. We have a daughter, Asia, who is 11 years old.
Q: Can you explain what you do and what is your team responsible for at LRC-Italy?
A: I am the production control supervisor at LRC-Italy’s installation equipment maintenance activity. Overall, I am responsible for around 40 people within IMMA. We have a supply store, service and repair shop, related trades shop which includes small arms repair, production control which understands safety and environment, and we operate the station of private vehicle inspection in Caserma Ederle. My team maintains commercial and tactical vehicles, such as light and medium tactical vehicles, Humvees, generators, cranes, tractors, sweepers, trucks, vans, sedans and more. We also support the Caserma Ederle fire station by performing maintenance and repairs on all of their fire trucks. This is our priority.
Q: Why is the work of your team at LRC-Italy so important?
A: Our work is very important as we provide assistance and support to all units stationed here. For example, we are supporting the 173rd Airborne Brigade. If they are unable to repair a specific type of equipment or vehicle, we offer our services and help them get back on the road. Additionally, we are the only organization here with professionally trained mechanics who can service commercial civilian vehicles. We provide important services to the US Army Garrison in Italy – to include the direction of logistics and the direction of emergency services as well as all members of the community.
Q: What do you like about your job and what motivates you?
A: I love my job because I love the military. My family is an army family. My grandfather served in the military during WWII, and my whole family – my brothers and my father – enjoyed his service in the military. In addition, the work here is very dynamic. Every day there are new challenges and new missions. I like to support and work for my team. I work for them – that’s one of the most important things for me.
LRC-Italy and 405th AFSB: When it comes to providing day-to-day installation services, LRC-Italy leads, manages and coordinates a variety of operations and activities in support of the USAG Italy. LRC-Italy reports to 405th AFSB, which is assigned to the US Army Sustainment Command and under the operational control of the 21th Theater Sustainment Command, US Army Europe and Africa.
