Scott was with Superstition for 18 years previously. Scott worked as a trim carpenter, trim foreman and finally as an estimator. Scott was known for high level of quality and knowledge when it came to trim. When Scott came into the office as an estimator, it was to lend his expertise in trim to a bunch of rough framers that composed the estimating department. Once in the department, Scott learned the “rough” side of estimating. In his return, Scott presides over all aspects of the estimating department. Scott also worked in the oil industry as a safety manager. He brings that knowledge back with him to consult in our safety program.

Louie started his construction career in 1985 as a laborer on a large apartment complex. He then came to work for Superstition where he honed his trade. While with Superstition, Louie was the lead man on a very successful and productive crew. After his days with Superstition, Louie held positions with several construction companies as a foreman and superintendent. Louie was also a Lieutenant at the Red Rock Correctional Facility, where Superstition Components operates our wall plant. One day, a chance encounter between Vince Palazzolo and Louie while Louie was working as a vocational instructor in the carpentry trade, led to Louie coming aboard as the Plant Manager. The combination of his correctional career and his carpentry skills have made Louie a huge success in his current position.
In 1984, Jon came to Superstition straight out of trade school. Jon’s schooling naturally would have given him a leg up on others joining the trade. Unfortunately, Jon’s first foreman was a mean sort. Jon was thrown a broom and told to start sweeping. Jon survived that first day and spent the next 15 years with the company. He learned the trade quickly and became one of the top foremen in the company. After his time with Superstition, Jon went to work with some of the local home builders as a superintendent. Jon’s carpentry knowledge, combined with the insights of the home builders’ side, make him a perfect framing superintendent.
