I had the pleasure of speaking with Jim Vickers, the founder and managing director of the Vickers Group, a high-end composite materials manufacturing company located in New York. He wanted to start a conversation about what we do, the future of composite construction, and his own thoughts on his work and his family life.
Jim’s group is one of the largest composite materials manufacturers in the world. Jim and his team produce about 3 to 4 billion board-oriented composite panels a year. They manufacture a wide range of high quality composite panels and structures, including buildings and bridges. As a contractor for the construction industry, they are often called upon to work with new construction projects where the composite materials are used, often in conjunction with steel.
Jim uses composite materials extensively when building bridges, buildings, and homes. Composite materials are an excellent, low-maintenance way to create structural components. They work well with steel and can be produced economically. The construction industry is very competitive, so Jim and his team have to be at the forefront of new technology. This means that they are constantly looking for ways to offer better products and better service.
Jim has built a lot of buildings with steel and composites. But he also has a team of technicians who are constantly developing new materials, new processes, new applications and even new machines. They are constantly coming up with new products for composite materials and are constantly looking for new ways to make money.
Jim has always been interested in making a living, but he hasn’t always made it as a professional. In fact he’s been so busy he’s actually been out of work for the past 6 years. When Jim started out, he was doing a lot of research and development. He eventually found a way to turn himself and his business from a hobby into a full-time job, one in which he can make a real living.
For Jim, it all started with his own father. Jim was born in 1985 in the small town of Lake Jackson, Michigan, which is just across the border from the city of Terre Haute, Indiana. He was the youngest of four children and his parents were both college educated professionals. Jim’s family moved to Terre Haute when he was just 5 years old. His father worked as a carpenter, and his mother was a teacher at a local high school.
Jim is the only son of a single parent family. He was born with only one of his parents’ eyes on him (his father’s), which was a rare occurrence in his family. He is the product of a very healthy environment, and he was the very first of five children that his family has had.
Jims family was very lucky. His father worked as a carpenter, and his mother was a teacher at a local high school. He was born with only one of his parents eyes on him. He is the product of a very healthy environment, and he was the very first of five children that his family has had.
