Stephen Getz

For over 48 years, Stephen Getz has been a productive figure in the concrete and masonry construction and fastening industry. Stephen’s career began in 1974 after graduating from Indiana Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering. Since then, he has worked for some of the most prominent companies in the concrete and masonry construction business.

Stephen’s exposure to the cement products industry started after graduation from college at General Portland Cement Company. His construction products experience continued to develop as he was employed by ITT Phillips. He was responsible for the development of fasteners used in concrete and masonry structures for 10 years. It was during this period that he created new anchors for the masonry restoration markets. One patent and the submittal of 9 others occurred during his tenure at Phillips.

In 1986, Dur-O-Wal hired Stephen where he contributed to the development of new products (one patent and one application) for the masonry construction and restoration marketplace. His tenure of 17 years expanded his talents as an engineer, salesperson, and marketing expert in the masonry construction and restoration marketplace.

Following his Dur-O-Wal experience, Stephen spent three years at Blok-Lok as V-P of Sales and Marketing. In 2005, CTP, Inc was founded by Stephen to focus on the development of a company which captures his vast product knowledge and apply it to the masonry and concrete construction industry. CTP’s vision was to supply quality products and service to the masonry and building restoration marketplace that are functionally cutting edge in technology and provide superior performance characteristics.

Over the years, Stephen grew CTP into a thriving family business in masonry anchoring with his wife, Julie Getz, and daughter, Kelly Morris. He worked alongside Julie in manufacturing, packaging, shipping, and inventory while teaching Kelly the technical and sales portion of the masonry anchoring business. In June of 2019, CTP was acquired by PROSOCO, a manufacturer known for masonry cleaners and a technical approach to preserving, as well as restoring masonry, so adding the anchoring line provided another opportunity for the masonry world to clean, protect, AND stabilize masonry buildings. Through Stephen’s mentorship, Kelly has been able to help develop the anchoring division at PROSOCO, as Stephen continues to provide technical advice, design, and instruction for the PROSOCO team and customers. He is looking forward to semi-retirement, but before leaving he is working with a young engineer that will hopefully have the same impact on the masonry industry that Stephen has.

Stephen is a member of The Masonry Society Committee 402/ACI 530/ASCE-5 Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures. Past active memberships include the American Society of Testing and Materials- Sub Committee E-6; the American Metallurgical Society, the Construction Specification Institute; the American Concrete Institute; the Association for Preservation Technology; Sealant, Waterproofing and Restoration Institute; International Concrete Repair Institute; International Concrete Repair Institute; and the American Society of Civil Engineers.

With various testimonials, the impact he has had on the masonry industry is monumental. The technical knowledge and business skills learned from Steve are used every day in the masonry industry.
