Meet The Team
Mark was a successful young entrepreneur when he was approached to manage a manufacturing facility and produce products to build and maintain shoot houses for military and law enforcement. He immediately seized the opportunity and spent the next 11 years becoming an expert in manufacturing SACON products. Over the years, Mark perfected the SACON mixing process and sourced the best possible ingredients to ensure the highest quality products. Mark has produced SACON products for over 75 major projects, shipped all over the world, and his previous employer is a co-developer and co-patent holder of SACON with the Army Corps of Engineers.
In addition to managing the manufacturing facility, Mark also used his extensive engineering skills to personally re-furbish a concrete mixer, install it, and re-modeled the facility to add a chute and 'hopper'. In his spare time, Mark also enjoys re-building and restoring International Harvester Scout trucks and is amassing quite a collection. Mark has natural engineering talent and can fix any machine and keep it running. He can perform every job in the shop, and coordinates all logistical shipments to ensure all products reach their destination -- on time, every time. He personally performs quality checks of every SACON shipment. Mark is a perfectionist with a high expectation for quality in everything he does, whether it is for work or his hobby.
When Mark's employer decided to divest the manufacturing processes, Mark again seized the opportunity and he and his wife, Linda, purchased the manufacturing assets. Their complimentary skills and expertise ensure the future success of MOUT Solutions.
