Paul Taylor has been a Bay Area businessman building small companies and jobs since 1975. Despite his having an open door to medical school after attending Cal State University in Hayward, California, he had a different desire for his career. In 1980, Paul discovered a small, struggling business in Oakland fabricating foam. He purchased half ownership in Bay Foam for $2000! The business flourished becoming
well known in an industry of giant companies who he competed directly against.
By 1995, when Paul sold Bay Area Foam, he not only built the foam business but also pioneered two other companies. One was Bay Foam Builders Inc., a construction company developing the use of rigid foam products in the construction industry for some of the largest home builders in the Bay Area such as Shea Homes, Shapell, Davidson Homes and many others. This was to help implement the rigid foam products he was developing into a new area of construction. Also, he continued with another new industry as the leader in Northern California called JetStream Watercutting Inc. which was founded by him in 1988. An industry virtually unknown at the time but Paul saw how this would be a new industry that had great potential to expand throughout America. Paul retired from that business in 2010 having the pleasure knowing that this industry had by that time became a household name. Waterjet Cutting.
Through Paul's endeavors, 1000's of jobs were created and what made all that so special to him was two factors. One was that these businesses never were ones he had any previous experiences in as well as they were started with shoestring monies.
Also, that Paul's desire would also be businesses that could be spread out across America creating blue collar jobs.
Paul will tell you that it was very hard and that he used his own money to start and develop these three companies which have contributed to the well being of thousands
of Americans giving him the satisfaction of a job well done. All along the way, it was about people first and Paul second.
Today, Paul, is still all about people. He has been and still is involved in Men's Ministries in his church. He still mentors small businessmen and is greatly know as an encourager to all who seek to start their own businesses. When it comes to jobs, Paul is excited to preform.
Paul is married and has a son with two grandchildren. He has spent his entire life in the Bay Area. Because of his love for his family as well as for people, today Paul seeks to take his business knowledge to a field having no previous experience and that doesn't scare him one bit. He's always gone into areas unknown to him and succeeded. This new endeavor is to run for US Senate in 2018 representing Californians to focus on jobs.
