W.T. Bathurst Sr., a self-made entrepreneur from Billings, Montana, had a long career as a machinist for Rocky Flats and Gates Rubber Company in Denver, Colorado before founding Action Industries in 1981. W.T.'s son Bill joined the team in 1989, and moved the plant to its current site in Arvada, Colorado in 1991.
Bill is the President of Action Industries and holds a degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology and Business Management from Brigham Young University. Prior to assuming full-responsibilities, Bill worked as a Quality Assurance Engineer for Mountain Medical and as a Manufacturing Engineer at Ball Metal Container and Ball Aerospace. Those experiences gave Bill a firm foundation of what customers expect from a quality Parts Manufacturer and he has put that knowledge into ACTION for our customers.
