David Adams is the founder of Orange County—based ENVIROCON Contracting, Inc., the reputable asbestos and lead abatement firm recently acquired by HARBRO. David, a 30-year veteran of the mechanical insulation, abatement, and demolition industry, has joined HARBRO in the capacity of Vice President of Environmental Services. David will lead HARBRO’s effort to address what in the past few years has become an evident and pressing need of our clients to have available the full spectrum of asbestos abatement services directly from one trusted source–HARBRO.
David graduated from California State University, Chico, in 1980 and shortly thereafter began his career as an estimator with Orange County—based insulation contractor, Karcher Environmental. Shortly after he was hired, he earned a key promotion that placed him at the helm of the company’s asbestos abatement division. He led that division for several years and then joined Penhall Company, a construction services contractor, in 1988 as vice president of sales and marketing to launch its environmental services division.
In 1990, leveraging 6 short, but rigorous years’ worth of technical expertise, management experience, and business acumen, he founded ENVIROCON Contracting, Inc., specializing in asbestos and lead abatement, and has been acting president until the company’s recent acquisition by HARBRO. David is now Vice President of Environmental Services at HARBRO and will oversee all operations, reach out to HARBRO’s various operation centers, enhance HARBRO’s service capabilities, foster new business, and ensure continuity of service to ENVIROCON’s existing client base.
David is a Southern California native and a 1973 graduate of Glendora High School. Outside of the office, David enjoys traveling, skiing, fishing, music, and painting. He has played guitar since age 11 and, for the past 25 years, has been a member of The Hurricanes, an event and party rock and surf band. He has been married to his wife, Debbie, for 30 years and together they have three adult children, Nic, Jack, and Sydney. Dave and his wife live in San Clemente.
