Dustin Morris joined Allied Reliability in July of 2001 and has over 21 years in Condition Based Maintenance (CBM). Dustin started his career in the US Air Force as an Electrical/Environmental Systems Specialist on F-111F and F-4 aircraft. He began his CBM career in 1997 as a Vibration Technician at the Cargill Corn Milling Facility in Eddyville, IA.
While in the Air Force, Dustin was in the first class of Airmen to receive training under the newly combined Air Force Specialty Code of Electrical/Environmental System Specialist. He was stationed at Royal Air Force Lakenheath in Suffolk, England during the first Gulf War.
Upon leaving the military, Dustin returned to his hometown of Ottumwa, IA and worked at a local plant manufacturing bathtubs and shower enclosures. It was at this time that he began taking industrial maintenance courses at Indian Hills Community College (IHCC).
From his education at IHCC, Dustin received a job offer from a contractor at the Cargill Eddyville site to become a Vibration Technician. His interest in this field led to him quickly passing his Level II Vibration certification exam. In 2001, when Allied assumed ownership of Cargill’s PdM program, Dustin came aboard and seized the opportunity to expand his knowledge of reliability. Since joining Allied, he has passed the Level III Vibration and CMRP exams. Dustin spent four years at the Eddyville site as a Lead Analyst before transitioning to the Program Manager role at the Blair, NE Cargill site for nine months, then back to Eddyville as Program Manager. For Eddyville, he managed 13 employees performing condition monitoring activities on 5700 assets. He was a Mechanical Subject Matter Expert in the Midwest Region for 2 years before transitioning to Allied’s team at Mosaic for 5 years. He is currently the CBM Technical Director, serving as a technical touchpoint for all of Allied’s CBM clients and helping Allied advance the technical frontiers of the CBM business.
