Meet Our Team
Mike Richardson, Owner
Mike got into the construction industry shortly after high school in Silverton, OR in 1984. After a short stint in southern California, Mike realized his home is in Oregon and returned in the late 80’s, going to work for a local modular building manufacturing company, Blazer Industries, where he learned his future trade. Seeing a niche market opportunity, Mike struck out on his own in 1992 with the establishment of EZ Systems. Mike handles the estimating and scheduling for all mobile & modular projects, in addition to overseeing all day-to-day operations of the company.
Harlan, Mike’s dad, has been working side-by-side with Mike since the formation of the company in 1992. From swinging a hammer to providing moral support, Harlan has helped make this three-generation company what it is today. Today, Harlan is a fixture at the shop, doing odds & ends, chatting with the crew, or just enjoying retirement.
Larry Pond, Foreman
A 1983 graduate from Silverton Union High School, Larry and Mike were close friends all through school, forming a bond of trust that they enjoy to this day. The consummate worker and all around good guy, Larry oversees each project to ensure they are completed on time, on budget and to the customer’s satisfaction. Larry’s in-depth knowledge and skills learned on-the-job, have earned him respect throughout the industry and the company alike. Larry joined EZ Systems in 2002.
Bob Murtha; Safety & Project Manager, Welcome Ramp Sales
Another Silverton graduate, Bob & Mike became fast friends in grade school and remained friends through high school. Going their separate ways after graduation, they reconnected in 2007. Bob has followed several career paths over the years including over a decade of well-rounded restaurant experience, several years of home construction, and nineteen years in freight transportation. When the opportunity for a new challenge was presented to him by Mike, he jumped at the opportunity to go to join the team at EZ Systems. Bob wears many hats on top of Safety & Project manager, including fleet manager, procurement, and executive go-fer. Bob joined EZ Systems in 2014. With the addition of distributor for Welcome Ramp Systems in Oregon & SW Washington, Bob will be handing all sales and estimates for this new endeavor. As business with Welcome Ramp Systems increases, Bob will hand off other responsibilities to other staff members.
