Fence Armor
Burlington, ON

Al is the Co-Owner & Director of CAM Solutions and Fence Armor.  He is part of the following groups and associations:  CFIA (Canadian Fence Industry Association – Vice President), NAFCA (North American Fence Contractors Association – Vice President), Victory Junction (Proud Supporter), Arlington Cemetery Annual Project (Proud Supporter), Petty Group Sponsor (Sponsorship for Thad Moffitt – ARCA), and SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers).  He is an accomplished director of two growing companies and makes the term “hardworking”an understatement. Building and integrating technologies with a focus on manufacturing makes CAM Solutions who they are today. 
 Inventing Fence Armor; their latest brain child, has been an exciting new endeavour. Bringing it to market with his business partner Luis Ruivo, speaks to his core business ethic of getting the job done, and done right.  “Made in North America is not just a statement without conviction, it is at the heart our company and it drills down to even the smallest details like ordering pads, stickers and other supplies. We create an American-made product, made by Americans, in North America. What could be better than keeping the jobs at home!  When he is able to escape and enjoy some downtime, he enjoys to ski, kayak, cycle, walk and take vacations with his boys at various destinations around the world. Al likes to work his body and feed his mind on products and adventures that go beyond.  About 2 years ago Al was on the season finale of Dragon’s Den, the American equivalent of Shark Tank. He had filmed all day and had to compete against another company to earn time with the Dragon’s. At the end of the day, after he had completed his mission and secured a deal, he tried to walk off the set only to face the final challenge……. the exit door. A good laugh to conclude the day!
