Meet Nick Rettig, Pope’s fabricator! This work-hard play-hard individual’s path to welding made for an interesting interview.⁠

Nick’s welding career sparked through his family of welders. His career started in his father’s shop. Through his family members, he learned how to pipe fit, amongst other welding projects like “being able to fix his own stuff”. Before coming to Pope, Nick worked at an oil refinery and installed all the fermentation tanks. ⁠

Some of the things Nick enjoys about working at Pope are that the shop is small, it’s nice to feel appreciated, and how friendly everyone is. Amongst his favorite things here, his favorite machine to use is the orbital welder.⁠

However, working is not all Nick does. When he is not on the clock, he enjoys riding dirt bikes, taking a ride in his old Cadillac 65 Coupe Deville, and going to the beach with his kids.⁠

Curious enough, he also welds outside of work on projects like hot rods and various other tasks. But if this charismatic employee hasn’t caught your attention yet, he has even done work for the silver screen in the past for movies through a friend of his dad! Some movies they did work for are Home Alone 2 (Dunkin’s toy chest/ toy store sign), Baby’s Day Out, Straight Talk, blank man (duplicated the CTA train on F150), and The Untouchables. They have even done crash car roll cages. Nick remembers meeting John Candy once as a kid while his dad worked with his friend for a movie.⁠
