Innovation defines a company but organization and implementation ensure it’s long term success. Stonemaker’s company directors and management team have been mandated with the task of ensuring these founding principles are adhered to. With a deep rooted talent base that is comprised of entrepreneurs and experienced executives, Stonemaker is well positioned for growth and sustainability well into the 21st century. And while we acknowledge the contributions of many, some the company’s founders and key decision makers include:
Mr. Gary Troke, the CEO of Stonemaker is an inventor and industrial equipment designer, dating back to the late 70’s.
In the early 80’s, Mr. Troke achieved worldwide recognition in the United Nations Development Forum for his work in cleaning vegetation choked waterways in developing countries. His invention of the worlds first portable aquatic vegetation harvester was, and is being used extensively cleaning recreational areas in the developed world and maintaining unrestricted water flow, essential to life in the developing world.
In the 90’s, Mr. Troke worked diligently automating and updating traditional equipment and methods used by artisans in the developing world. His work had a huge economic impact within the textile industry in the middle east.
In early 2000 he turned his attention toward the concrete industry. Over a period of nine years he developed many new and innovative processes which would eventually be incorporated into what is now known as Stonemaker, which can only be described as a revolution and a game changer within the construction industry.
When asked of the difficulties developing Stonemaker, Mr. Troke replied that it is easy to build a block or brick machine, but the largest problem to overcome was designing a mobile production machine, versatile enough to supply almost all concrete needs, utilising indigenous materials.
