Top Gard Inc. was formed early in 2012 by Bob Cameron. The idea of a concrete pipe bollard cap arose from a contractor’s frustration with the time and labor it was taking to finish the bollards, and on top of that, they looked unprofessional. With Bob’s background and experience in the concrete industry, he soon had a prototype and TopGard was launched. The product has been extremely popular and sales continue to grow as more contractors and architects learn about the product and it’s money saving benefits. The product is now patent pending.
Bob Cameron was raised around the construction supply business by his father who was also named Bob Cameron. The senior Cameron started his career in the 1970’s with the North South Supply Company and then onto the Burke Company working his way up to Regional Vice President. In 1993 Cameron purchased five Midwest locations from Alumasystems (formerly Burke Co.) and started Triden Construction Supply. Bob Cameron Jr. joined Triden in 2001 as the Business Development Manager. Bob immediately made an impact by starting a residential division within Triden. Triden was sold to White Cap Construction Supply in 2004 and Bob Jr. Stayed on with White Cap as a Residential Dvisional Manager. The entrepreneurial spirit runs deep within the Cameron family and for this reason Bob has made the step back into owning and operating a construction products business.
