21 JUNE 2022 WorldWide Drilling Resource® Industry Announcements ChemGrout® Founder Ben Schatz celebrated his 91st birthday in style. The company hosted a special celebration at their LaGrange Park, Illinois location, complete with a spread of delicious food and of course, birthday cake. Ben started the company in 1963, conducting cement and chemical grouting field services all over the world using equipment he manufactured for his own use. His equipment caught the eye of fellow grouters in the industry. They liked the simplicity of Ben’s design and how easy it was to operate. ChemGrout eventually phased out its field work services and focussed on designing and manufacturing grouters. Today, nearly 60 years later, the company is considered by many to be the industry standard for grouting equipment used for mining, tunnelling, foundations, environmental remediation, geothermal, and geotechnical projects around the world. Congratulations Ben from the WWDR Team!
