“Life is not only about work.” That’s the impression you immediately get when you walk into the offices of Jacksonville, Fla., based Triple R Specialty and meet the people who run this extraordinary company. Step into the office of Richard Mummaw, one of the two principals, and you will see big game hanging from all four walls, a strong testament to this man’s passion for the outdoors and hunting. Step into the office of his partner,, Perry Havener, and you will see photo after photo of ball teams that Perry has either played for or has served as a referee. Both have backgrounds as competitive softball players although Perry defers to Richard as the better player. “He played major competitive softball for several national championship teams,” says Perry, “and even played for the Dodgers Double A Organization.” Both also are avid golfers. But don’t let that fool you. These two are serious about business. Triple R Specialty was started by three men, Richard, Robert and Ralph (Triple R), in 1986. They all worked in the fire protection industry and developed a new style roll groover, the G-2. This unit is still sold today, with minor changes from the original, as a Model G-2000 roll groover. Of the three original partners, however, only Richard remains with the company today. Perry joined Richard in 1995 by buying out the remaining partner, and today they are the sole owners. This was a perfect fit since he spent over ten years in the field as a licensed plumber. Matching his plumbing background with Richard’s fire protection, they have been able to develop products for both industries. Other key players in the company are Skip Iddings and Jeff Dean. Skip, who has been with the company for four years, has primary responsibility for the main assembly and oversees shipping the finished product. Jeff Dean, a six-year veteran of the company, is the sales manager and also oversees the in-house production studio for audio and visual presentations.
