ABOUT

Kenneth Bolinger

Founder

Ken graduated from Massachusetts Maritime Academy with a Marine Engineering Degree and a minor in Facilities Engineering. He started his career traveling the world, working for shipping companies as an engineer on board large ships. During this time, he worked on many systems including hydraulic, HVAC, steam, pneumatic and electrical, so he has hands on experience as well as engineering knowledge. He then went on to work as a Sales Engineer for a systems integrator that incorporated manufacturers components into control specific systems for eight years. Ken decided to branch out on his own and start his own company, which has been in operation for 20 years.

Ken is an avid boater, as well as an offshore powerboat racer, which supports Make a Wish Foundation. He enjoys fitness and working on mechanical performance items.
