When Dan founded Essential Life Solutions in 1999, he was working mainly as a distributor. While selling chromatography columns for many years, he became aware of the unmet needs of his customers. As a mechanical engineer by trade, he recognized the potential for a better option and decided to create his own product. After 5 years of development, Dan was issued two U.S. Patents for his SNAP® column technology (listed below).
Dan also has over 40 years of experience as a business owner. In 1975, he purchased his family business, Hodge Engineering and Fabrication, which built large pressure vessels and autoclaves. As President, he increased business volume from 5M in sales to 7M. During this time, he founded another company called Precision Fabricators, which designs and manufactures cylinders for the semiconductor industry. While President, he grew this company to 2M in sales.
