Les Thompson, President

Mr. Thompson has over 40 years of experience in engineering, design, and construction, primarily in the fields of erosion remediation, stream-bank restoration, pipeline geo-hazard mitigation, and the installation of various systems designed to stabilize these complicated issues. As the owner of a civil construction and pipeline services company launched in 1980, Mr. Thompson has been involved in the design and installation of over 20 million square feet of fabric-formed concrete. His belief in Armorform's ability to out-perform and out-price the vast number of products available on the market led him to pursue the business of manufacturing fabric-formed concrete for his construction company. As a "turnkey" contractor, Mr. Thompson held the liability of both the engineer and the installer. His choice to utilize fabric-formed concrete as the product of choice, and ultimately the purchase of Carolina Yarn and Fabrics, LLC in 2013, is a true testament to this product's superior performance.
