Dale and Mark Shaw of Ultratech in Jacksonville, Florida have one of those stories about accidentally going into business together. Inspired by the Love Canal environmental disaster, Mark wanted to save the world from toxic chemicals. Inspired by some harebrained ideas they had, Dale wanted to save Mark and his partners from some lousy bookkeeping plans. 25 years later, Mark and Dale are a force in environmental compliance, spill containment and advanced technology products. Theirs is also a business that has had more than its 15 minutes of fame. They were responsible for a viral video that crippled their sales department. Mark and Dale are smart, fun and engaging—and have quite a story about being a couple in love and in business because of Love Canal.
