Kalvis Nikiforovs

Dairy Equipment Installation Technician
Joined DLS June 2020

A year and a half in, Kalvis has had quite a bit of exposure at DLS! He was hired last year as a construction labourer on the DLS Structures team to work on AHE Dairy Farms 5 GEA R9500 robot barn. When that project finished, he was trained in robotics and started to do robot service calls; he was also involved in the GEA R9500 robot retrofit installation at Macksvilla Farms. Since then, he has been doing parlour installs and many plumbing jobs with longtime DLS employee Justin Mulder and his team! Wow, Kalvis, you have made the rounds!!!

Kalvis graduated from the Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies bachelor program in Civil Engineering. Since then, he’s been working in construction-related jobs.

Before DLS, he worked in construction as a project manager in his home country of Latvia. Kalvis told us his hometown is Valmiera, Latvia. An interesting fact concerning Latvia: Latvia is a small North Eastern European country that became independent from the USSR just 30 years ago. After departing Latvia, Kalvis travelled across Canada and did many different seasonal jobs at resorts and restaurants.

Basketball and travelling are Kalvis’s favourite pastimes; he’s played basketball since he was 7 and enjoys most sports. This past summer, he took up golf and has found it is not as easy as it may look! At home, Kalvis enjoys the company of his girlfriend Olivia and a Russian Blue cat named Doctor.

Kalvis aspires to work in project management or some type of engineering-related position down the road.
