George Owens has worked since the time he was 14 years old. He graduated from Sacred Heart High School in Sedalia, MO, and went on to land himself a job building houses. While he enjoyed that job, the monotony got to him, eventually, and he found himself teaching Building Trades.
No matter where he taught or coached, be it at a college or one of his children’s many sporting activities, his passion for teaching others has led him to where he is today. The passion for safety and educating fellow drivers is of the utmost highest priority for him in his life right now.
George taught driving education at his local community college before he found himself up North taking a job in the Gas and Oil industry. On a job site one day back in 2012, as a fellow employee was struggling to back up a big rig, George thought, “wouldn’t it be nice if there was something invented that helped spotters and drivers back up safely?”
Thus, the idea of SpotterCone was born. After working many years to bring it to life, he was able to secure a patent on his invention in 2017. Today, SpotterCone is available nationwide and has been helping those in the trucking, RV, and boat industry back up safely.
While SpotterCone is never intended to replace the actual spotters, it has taken the guesswork out of aligning and stopping your vehicle in the correct spot, saving countless crashes and fatalities. If you aren’t using SpotterCone, you’re simply risking too much in regards to safety. Ask yourself, “Is it worth it?”
