CEO of Jet Demolition (South Africa)
After being born and raised on a farm in Illinois (USA) and receiving a blasting-focused Master’s degree in Mining Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla in 1982, Joe and Liz, his wife and a Metallurgical Engineer, moved to South Africa in 1983 in pursuit of adventure and opportunity. Joe then undertook applied blasting research for the Research Organization of the Chamber of Mines of South Africa until 1989.
This was followed by 5 years of technical consulting, field projects and product development relating to many facets of explosives applications. He developed a patented range of shaped explosive charges for demolition and rock breaking, and this is what pulled him to the demolition industry in 1991. He discovered the ultimate occupation, and formed the company Jet Demolition (Pty) Ltd, with the company name and logo being inspired by the jetting action of a shaped explosive charge.
Soon after, he was joined by Liz, and they set about building a technically-based company from scratch with the objective of providing the highest quality of safe demolition services in Africa.
Jet Demolition undertakes mainly heavy industrial demolition projects for multinational companies who demand the highest levels of safety and quality in the developing world, and also large and difficult commercial projects. They undertake projects throughout Africa and have also worked in Indonesia. Whilst originally planning to spend 2-3 years in South Africa, Joe and Liz fell under the spell of Africa, raised a family of 4 wonderful sons, and became fully entrenched there.
Сейчас они уже 38-ой год в Южной Африке, и приключение продолжается...
