OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM
Richard A. Steinke graduated from the University of Arizona in 1967, majoring in Economics and Political Science. Since then he has been involved in many different business ventures. Following his graduation, he was in oil and gas exploration and in the mining of precious minerals throughout the Southwestern United States. He also owned his own real estate company and did custom homes and commercial construction projects.
From 1985 - 1992, Mr. Steinke was Chairman and CEO of UTI Chemicals, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of urethane chemical systems in Irvine, California. He has several patents in the processing of urethane systems and manufacturing techniques.
From 1992 - 1995, he served as Chairman and CEO of Alanco Environmental Resources, Inc., a manufacturer of environmental/pollution control equipment in Scottsdale, Arizona. At Alanco, Mr. Steinke received five patents in the air pollution industry using a dry scrubber system for removing gases from a gas stream. Since then he has received another patent which simplifies all of the above procedures.
From 1995 - 2007, Mr. Steinke served as Chairman and CEO of Amerityre Corporation. He has received several patents in tire design, equipment, and manufacturing processes. Along with Manuel Chacon, he invented a polyurethane chemical system for the replacement of rubber tires. This is the only urethane system to pass Department of Transportation tests. He also invented a polyurethane foam that contains a closed cell system which is used for low-duty cycle tires such as bicycles and lawn and garden tires.
Currently Mr. Steinke serves as President and CEO of Wind Sail Receptor, Inc. He has invented a new windmill technology using polyurethane blades and has received the patent on the Wind Sail Receptor design for wind and water turbines. The design has been tested, and the new windmill technology is ready to be deployed.
Mr. Griffiths is currently Secretary/Treasurer and member of the Board of Directors of Wind Sail Receptor. From January 2002 until the present, his duties include directing and managing all financial programs and supporting information systems of the company including budgeting, receipt of funds, issuances of stock certificates, recording funds use, and establishing and maintaining financial record systems in accordance with generally accepted auditing and accounting principles used in the USA.
He was formerly Secretary/Treasurer of publicly-traded Amerityre Corporation (AMTY). From 1995 to July 2007 his duties included directing and managing financial programs including expenditure of funds and conservation of assets. He oversaw the approval and processing of revenue, expenditure, and position control documents, salary updates, and maintenance of accounts and ledgers ensuring maintenance of appropriate internal control safeguards.
From 1959 to 1995 he was active in public accounting with specializations including income tax, estate tax, tax compliance, and related auditing and accounting of private businesses, corporations, and nonprofit organizations.
Mr. Griffiths graduated from Arizona State University in 1959 with a major in Accounting and a minor in Economics.
Head of Research and Development
Juan Manual Chacon was born in Poncitlan Jalisco, Mexico. He came to the united states immediately following high school where he appeared at the front door of UTI Chemicals, Inc., Irvine, California, in late 1985. Since that time, Manny has been in the polyurethane formulating business.
There are several things a person must know in order to put chemicals together for finishing products. First, one must know the equipment and different pouring machines that are in the marketplace. Second, one must be a good mechanic in order to retrofit equipment for specific products. Third, one must know all kinds of molding technology to understand how to make an attractive product. Fourth, one must know the urethane chemicals and understand what additives to use in order to give the product the proper physical properties. And fifth, one must coordinate the processing of all the above steps to have a quality product.
Manny has worked with Richard Steinke the last 27 years in developing over 50 urethane products. Manny and Richard believe that they are well qualified to put together chemical systems for any polymer products. They also believe that their experience can aid in new product development for future urethane products.
Richard Steinke said that if he did not have Manny Chacon, he would never have attempted to do the polyurethane auto tire. The discipline and perseverance that was required for this product development was the most difficult that he has ever had to do. Richard Steinke also stated that "Manny Chacon is creative and innovative in manufacturing techniques."
"I believe we make the best team in the urethane chemical business," said Richard. Presently, Manny is working with Richard on W.S.R. blade material.
Mr. Moore was drafted into the US ARMY in 1965 and became a combat demolition expert and sharpshooter. He was the Battalion Training NCO for the 82nd Engineering Battalion and rose to the rank of Staff Sargent. After leaving the military in 1967, he attended the University of Akron in Civil Engineering (1967-1973). In 1972 he was hired on the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Ohio State Apprenticeship Program for plaster-model sculpture and mold design. He continued to work with Goodyear Tire & Rubber Model Shop as a master model maker and tire carver. He was assigned and assisted in developing advanced molding projects to expedite the tire-molding process, taking the normal experimental tire-production time of 6-9 months down to 2-3 months on finished tires for testing and approval for manufacturing. He presently has two patents in this molding process.
In 1998 Mr. Moore was approached by Mr. Steinke to go to work for American Tire and work on the low-duty cycle tires and the future car tire, both made of liquid-phase polyurethane. Mr. Moore started and owned Ultimate Design Works, LLC, and has been working with Mr. Steinke for 17 years on various projects. He presently has 4 patents on the projects that he has worked on for Mr. Steinke.
Mr. Moore has been a Member of the National Society of Professional Engineers since 1998. As a hobby, he was into History Reenacting of the 19th Century, Pre-1840 Time Line. He also taught foreign exchange students from Mount Union College in Alliance, Ohio about the expansion of the West during the Fur-Trade Era from 1800 to 1850. Now that he is in Nevada, he explores the deserts in the Southwest, viewing history of yesterday. He came to Wind Sail Receptor, Inc. in March of 2012 as a consultant.
