Four men to be inducted into Hall of Fame

his year, four men will join the ranks of those honored in the Decorative Concrete Hall of Fame at an induction ceremony and dinner held Oct. 28 at the 2019 Concrete Decor Show in Arlington, Texas. They are:

Marshall Barabasch Sr.
Currently head of Shaw & Sons Special Project Division, Barabasch has more than 40 years of themed, stamped and architectural concrete experience under his trowel. His specialty is themed concrete and he is well-known and highly respected in the Southern California theme park circuit. He has probably placed more concrete for the Disney resorts in California than anybody else in his 30+ years of doing business with the Mouse. Barabasch has also done work for the Disney resorts in Florida, China and Japan.

Jeff Irwin and Paul Sowa
Irwin and Sowa, co-owners of Proline Decorative Concrete Systems, have been life-long friends and business associates for more years than they care to count. They introduced their first seamless textured mat in 1990 during the World of Concrete in Las Vegas, where mega casinos such as Caesar’s Palace and Bellagio were among their constituents’ first customers. Today, the company’s inventory is about 150 patterns and growing. Most recently Proline introduced magnetic pattern stamps that are touted as a real game-changer that could revolutionize the decorative industry.
