Robert Rankin, President, and Bob Luckenbaugh, Vice President, met several years ago through gymnastics while watching their daughters go from level 3 beginners to skilled level 7 & 8 State champion gymnasts. During their many hours together, conversations frequently turned to work as both have over a decade of experience in the construction industry. Seeing an opportunity to provide a safe solution for their mutual customers, Be Safe Barrier was formed.
Robert has been instrumental in the design and implementation of temporary heating plans for thousands of buildings under construction.
