A Superior Solution

In 1982, Leonard Haddow designed and built the “Bolaro-Cat,” a clever, two-component pumping system using Aro pumps and air motors for spray and dispense applications. The engineering entrepreneur launched a business selling and servicing the custom-made product out of Mississauga, Ontario for varied applications from hockey sticks to pipeline coatings. By the late 1980s, the small company had taken on the Graco product line in addition to Aro (now Ingersol Rand Aro), making Bolair a recognized expert for both Aro and Graco pumping systems within the two-components coatings industry.

A Company with Commitment

A quarter of a century ago, a New Hampshire-based entrepreneur named Jeremy Hiltz used his strong foundation in the construction industry to launch his own company. “I grew up in the excavating business with my family and went out on my own in 1996 and started the company from nothing,” Hiltz says.

Building Highways to the Future

The influence of the Ed Bell Construction Company extends far beyond the highways of North Texas, and serves as a model for the future of highway construction. Recently, we enjoyed a wide-ranging conversation with Phillippe Falkner, who describes his role of Business Services Specialist at Ed Bell Construction Company (EBCC) “as a catch-all role to handle technology, special projects, continuous improvement, fleet management, software, and workforce development. I’m kind of a Jack-of-all-trades, and my job never gets monotonous, because two days are never the same.”
