He took three years from 1997 - 2000 to build and operate a start-up bottled water business in DFW. After selling that business he returned to Hydrotemp, Inc. as a Project Manager and Estimator. In 2006 he became President of Hydrotemp, Inc. and managed the business operations. In 2015 Eric purchased the business from Jerry Johnson and formed the company under Hydrotemp, LLC. He is currently the CEO and is actively involved in all daily business operations.
