Jack was born in Denmark and lived in Spain before his family migrated to Australia in 1983. Early on he discovered a natural flair for problem solving that led to an Electrical Engineering degree at the University of Southern Queensland and 6 years of project management for an electrical contracting company.
With a desire to run his own business, Jack moved on to form Tech Adhesives in 1999 – a company specialising in 3 resin technologies, of which epoxies became the sole focus. Acquisition of a distribution company (NMP) soon after enabled a full range of epoxy products to be developed and large-scale manufacturing began in 2002. Jack’s first major client was the Royal Australian Navy, which helped shape a product philosophy based on performance without the traditional hazards such as solvents, micronised silica and heavy metals.
Over the years, Jack’s problem-solving abilities and desire to help others has seen his attention drift to the bigger picture of turning resin flooring into a profession that could sit alongside other trades. What started with email bulletins and product demonstration videos (well before blogs and YouTube were the rage), has gone on to include writing a book and creating online training courses for installers all over the world. For Jack, the future is very much about providing world-class resin flooring training on a global level.
