With many years of experience in the concrete industry as a technical product rep, he saw a need for increased efficiency and higher performance mixes for shotcrete and started US Shotcrete Inc in 1989. His first product was Gun-Rite™ HP, a prepackaged shotcrete enhancer that is still widely specified today. Gun-Rite™ HP was the first product of its kind, giving contractors the ability to bulk mix shotcrete without field batching additives, saving labor time and increasing consistency in the final product. As their popularity grew, new products were developed, including specialty shotcrete cements and prepackaged shotcrete mixes.
