The Founder

As a Special Inspector I witnessed my first structural epoxy placement back in 2001.  From that first job I could see that there needed to be a better way of cleaning holes in preparation for placement of epoxy or driven anchors in concrete and masonry.  This started the wheels of my brain rolling.  I needed to come up with an easier and more effective system.

It took 10 years for me to think through all of the things that would be needed for such a tool to work in the field.  So, in the spring of 2011 while recovering from back surgery, I laid in my easy chair with a pencil, paper and a phone.  I sketched out a design, filed for a patent and then began lining up suppliers that I would need to make the new tool.

That is how the VortaBrush was born.
