About PDM Solar, Inc.

Founder's Background

Prior to founding PDM Solar in 2006, Dave Baker founded and ran PDM Technology, Inc., which was a designer and builder of custom machinery and test equipment. From 1993 to 2006 PDM Technology, Inc. successfully built and installed 43 consecutive major pieces of manufacturing and test equipment primarily for large industrial companies making automotive parts, motorized recreational engines, consumer products and heavy equipment.

Many of the systems included “First in the World” technology solutions to the customers’ manufacturing problems. PDM Technology’s success stories included wet test stands for Mercury Marine to verify EPA compliance on Mercury’s DFI engines; a 14 station fill, seal, and leak test system to produce Briggs and Stratton’s Fresh Start fuel stabilizer capsules; an engine head assembly line for John Deere; a laser system to verify piston ring orientation for Ford engines; and various end of line test systems for Polaris Industries.

Dave has a mechanical engineering degree from UW-Platteville, an MBA from the University of Chicago, and learned electrical engineering and electronics working under Dr. Steve Boggs at Chicago Condenser Corp.
