CARL BAUR BRINGS EXPERTISE AND NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO MINOVA Carl Baur has joined the Minova Team as the Technical Sales & Services Lead for the refractories and construction division in North America. Baur brings with him over 24 years in shotcrete and refractories industry experience and is an established expert in the shotcrete community. He has extensive experience in the cement, lime, and aluminum Baur markets, and has worked in concrete and refractories shotcreting, both wet and dry processes, for most of his career. Decades of installation and management experience equip Baur with professional and practical experience to effectively and successfully lead their teams. Given his expertise, Baur is often requested by clients for training classes, specification guidance, and project estimation opportunities. In addition, clients frequently refer to Baur for professional guidance in determining the best and most efficient manner to solve their complex shotcrete project problems. Most recently, Baur was a consultant at the Oroville Dam project site after the flooding and near failure of the spillway caused excessive damage to the spillway and surrounding infrastructure last February. Since joining Minova, Baur has helped establish a comprehensive shotcrete services and sales team in Millstadt, IL. With the addition of this facility, MINOVA now has a rapid response team in place that affords us them the ability to provide technical field services, as well as the capability to fill specialty pump and shotcrete orders outside of their standard customer service teams. This centralized U.S. location further enables Minova to consolidate and manage all their existing pumps and shotcrete resources while affording them a centralized location where they can stock third-party parts and supplies, such as Reed pump parts, as well as standard cementitious shotcrete and Tekcrete products. Baur is an incredible addition to the Minova team. With his experience and solid reputation, they now have a proven leader that provides direct access to markets that would have taken years to develop.
