The Williams story began in 1922 when Mr. C. I. Williams graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Civil Engineering. He immediately took a job with the State of Michigan as a bridge inspector. It was not long until Mr. Williams realized the industry desperately needed an improved system for pouring concrete. By the late 1920's he had developed a concept for a detachable forming system which he called the "Shebolt" system. Mr. Williams quit his job as a bridge inspector, bought some equipment and began manufacturing his new product.
