Avanti International recently announced the addition of Jacob Swanson to its staff. Swanson has over 10 years of injection grouting experience for innovative companies such as BDA & Associates and Structural Group – including Structural Specialty Contracting and PULLMAN. From an early age, Swanson knew he was going to be in the contracting industry. At age 18, he performed his first grouting project, majored in construction management at Minneapolis Community & Technical College, and has been mentored by some of the best minds in the industry.
As an expert injection specialist of acrylics, polyurethane and cementitious grouts, Swanson s past responsibilities include crew chief, project manager and liaison for engineers and owners. Swanson confesses to not know it all, learns something new every day, and looks forward to teaching what he knows to Avanti’s community of contractors, municipalities, engineers and dealer channel. When Swanson is not advancing the injection grout industry, he enjoys rebuilding cars and skydiving.
Britt N. Babcock, Avanti’s Vice President of Sales says “Over the last year and a half, Chris Hamilton has been a stellar performer in the Midwest – so transitioning Chris to the Southeast region was an easy decision as he resides in Atlanta. Finding a suitable replacement in the Midwest was a concern, but no longer. Avanti is very proud to have the expertise of Jacob Swanson on the team. Over the last 12 weeks, he has already proven to be an asset to our partners.”
Avanti is the only full-service provider and most experienced producer of high-quality chemical and cement grouts in the United States. Since 1978, Avanti’s product line has grown from Acrylamide gel to a comprehensive line of cementitious, acrylic, acrylate, hydrophobic, hydrophobic, foam and gel grouts.
