Loren Grober was born and raised in New York City and attended high school in the midwest. She made her debut into the world of steel in 1981 when women weren’t very common in the steel industry. Loren quickly made a name for herself in the industry, and it was soon evident that she could branch off and make her own way in the world of steel and that is exactly what she did.
The Loren Group was born with a vision for a full-service production of heavy steel fabrication. One of Loren’s strong suits is networking and she formed what could only be described as friendships with her customers and manufacturers and built an empire by treating people fairly. She never advertised her services or work, instead the work spoke for itself. She dove into the specialty world of deep foundations and became the nation’s largest producer of the tapered friction pile. As The Loren Group grew, she saw the need for a partnership and set out to find someone who would be a good fit with which to share the reins.
Bethanne Mashburn was born and raised in Alabama. She is a seasoned entrepreneur having the experience of five businesses under her belt with a background in marketing and sales. Although steel was a new industry for her, Bethanne was a natural fit with the Loren Group and brought a newfound enthusiasm and a vision for expansion to the partnership.
Together Loren and Bethanne are a dynamic duo. They combine sage wisdom of the steel industry and innovative enthusiasm of a new perspective.
