INNOVATION

Marty, as everyone knew him, left his mark on the world as an entrepreneur and philanthropist. He built a business now recognized worldwide as a leader in the engineering, manufacture, lease, sale, and service of industrial equipment and components. His list of charitable endeavors was long and reflected his deep interest in education experiments that build community and push the boundaries of what others believe is possible.
