Claude "Tripp" Gwin started his career as a United States Marine and did a tour of duty in Fallujah, Iraq. This highly decorated Marine was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps and started his civilian career as a machinist and metal fabricator. He received two Engineering degrees from York Technical College in Rock Hill, SC and graduated in the top of his class before moving into the Engineering field. He worked for one of the lead industrial engine suppliers as an Application Engineer before moving on to join one of the lead Water/Wastewater manufacturers on the east coast. After a while of leading the Engineering and Design department there he decided to team up with a friend and launch a company to cover more industries and place their company on a path to be a multi-million dollar corporation to make a difference and give back to the communities all over the world.  He enjoys looking for shark teeth on the beach with his wife and two boys, Golf, and exercising.
