As for our history, CALLAHEAD is a family business which originated in 1976. Charles
began working at CALLAHEAD from the start, and when he turned 16 years old he was
already running the company. From building portable toilets, cleaning equipment,

When I first met my husband in 1985, I was just 14 years of age and he was already
running the business. What stood out most to me about Charles, even back then, was his
creativity, work ethic and generosity. Even as a young man, he went above and beyond for
his family, friends, and always gave back to the community -- which he continues today.
In 1989, just after I graduated from high school, Charles hired me to work at CALLAHEAD.
I started part-time and eventually went to full-time. The company was small, and our
office was even smaller. We didn’t even have a bathroom. Well, we did have the cleanest
porta potties anywhere!
In early 1990 Charles built us a brand new office, which he designed himself, and
included an indoor bathroom. We didn't have computers then. Everything had to be typed
on old fashioned typewriters and filed into cabinets, log books and binders. It seems
like the dark ages when you compare it to how we operate with today’s technology.
