Gene created VEC Technologies, which Fortune Magazine described as “the manufacturing counterpart of a McDonald’s hamburger outlet. It’s fast, inexpensive, efficient and environmentally friendly.” VEC has produced hundreds of millions of dollars in products for the marine, heavy truck, plumbing, agriculture, and energy management industries.
With a $500 deposit from a customer, halfway through college, Gene and a friend started Pyramid Fitness Industries in a barn. Nine years later, it was a $44 million company.
He also launched Efficient Machine Tool Sales, which reached the number 13 slot on Inc. Magazine’s “Fastest Growing Companies” list.
He was the youngest person ever to receive the “Heroes in Manufacturing” award from Fortune Magazine. TIME Magazine labeled his VEC process a “revolution in a box” and wrote that it “was to manufacturing what DOS was to the personal-computer business in its early days.”
His companies have been the recipients of the coveted Malcolm Baldridge finalist awards.
