The opportunity to team with the current management group at BC Technical, with the addition of two excellent and very experienced senior executives in Mark Alvarez and Allen Smith, make this a perfect fit to capitalize on BC’s leading position and to expand in the attractive healthcare services marketplace.”

BC Technical Inc. will be led by President and CEO, Mark J.

Mr. Hale said, “We have had many opportunities over the years to sell BC Technical but never found the proper group to pass the baton to until now. With Mark and Allen’s leadership and experience, the company will be positioned to continue to expand and deliver superior services to it’s customers. In addition, Mark and Allen will preserve the culture of this fine company.”
