Well, this Sunday was a laugh for sure. Alan and I go back over twenty years. We first met when I was franchising the Brick-Tie business back in 1987. Alan bought the Humberside Brick-Tie franchise and was by far the most enthusiastic member of the Brick-Tie team for quite a time.
Alan wasn’t from a construction background but was very keen to learn. His pride in being part of the team was obvious – even his Yamaha 1000cc genesis motorbike was liveried in the company logo!
Since leaving he has established a successful business in the USA. Specialised Masonry Restoration, operate from Dallas, Texas and after fifteen years Alan’s built up a solid reputation for expertise and definatly for enthusiasm. Have a look at this web site to see the diverse nature of the work he’s doing across the pond.
We spent a happy few hours going over old times and swapping news of technological and practical developments on the masonry repair and wall tie installation front, so it was a busman’s holiday for both of us – sad old gits.
