Both Richard and Estella grew up in Iowa, and after getting married, they moved to California. After starting a commercial cleaning business with Estella, Richard began work with ATCO in 1997, and soon let the owner know he would like to acquire the company.  In 2003, he and Estella bought the company, and have been growing since then. Richard is primarily responsible for training and operations of the company.
