In 1986, Bolin Enterprises, Inc. began as a paint and body shop operated out of a garage. The family owned company landed its first big contract in 1987 with Trailmobile of Charleston, Ill. Trailmobile hired BEI as their contractor to sandblast and paint flatbed semi-trailers. Also in 1987, BEI began working with Marathon Pipe Line Company, performing sandblasting and painting of exposed pipe locations. This rapidly expanded to include a variety of pipeline maintenance projects that propelled BEI into the pipeline maintenance arena. The leadership, dedication, integrity, and work ethics of the Bolin family and employees led to satisfied customers asking BEI to meet more of their needs. In the more than 30 years of operations, Bolin Enterprises, Inc. has grown into a company of approximately 250 employees with jobs taking it to nearly all of the continental United States.
