From there he entered his father’s business and sold a mildew preventative to retailers. In 1960 during the Cuban Missile Crisis he was called back to again fly for the Navy. Afterwards he returned to his father’s company. He developed manufacturing and sales for Cream of Tartar. He next developed grinding processes for waxes used in printing inks. He then introduced the use of PTFE in printing ink. His technical achievements also include investigating mechanisms on how waxes work to impart rub resistance in printing inks and developing the process to radiate PTFE to make into micropowders.

He is a recipient of the National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers prestigious TAM service award and at 83 years old this year he continues to work on new technologies while remaining the Chairman and technical director of Shamrock Technologies.
