Getman Corporation’s beginning in the mining industry started in 1954 with a small motorized wheelbarrow called the Scoot-Crete. Manufactured at the time by Getman Brother’s Construction Company, the most common application for the Scoot-Crete was transporting concrete in municipal construction works ranging from parking ramps to road works and—perhaps most famously—to the construction of the Mackinac Bridge (in Northern Michigan, USA) between 1954 – 1957.

Like many people learning about early American settlers heading west to strike it rich, I envisioned the iconic prospector with pan in hand ready to discover his future.  The classic narrative of a prospector finding the once-in-a-lifetime nugget embodies that period in the history of US gold mining.  It wasn’t until much later that I learned the real treasure was there all along, just too small to see with the naked eye.  Many prospectors were surrounded by gold and never saw it.
