Material Listing Solutions is the brain child of Jerry Dollar, Jr., an Operating Engineer with Local 513 in St. Louis. His more than 20 years construction industry experience ranges from residential to commercial, including highways and infrastructure. He has worked on railroad expansion, an Air Force Base, and the Bakken Oil Pads. Jerry is especially proud to have helped build the new Busch Stadium for the St. Louis Cardinals and the best fans in baseball.
During his career, Jerry has witnessed improvements in equipment and standards from cabless tractors, steering clutches and cables to electronics, pilot controls, and GPS. The industry has evolved, but until now, still lagged in material management. Production used to be delayed while superintendents and foremen scrambled to find what they needed or made do with what they could find. Sometimes materials that would be useful right around the corner were hauled hours away.
Some jobs balance out, but often contractors must remove or acquire materials. Jerry’s idea to link contractors and job sites online came in a eureka moment more than ten years ago. He worked with developers to build a prototype and watched for the right time in the industry’s technology adoption.
