Our History

Richard F. “Dick” Storm started out as a results engineer with Babcock and Wilcox (USA) and he realized right away that the power industry was his niche. He held several positions over the next 30 years, including a senior service engineer with Riley Stoker Corp., principal engineer-start-up and testing at Carolina Power and Light (now Duke Energy), and department head of technical services at Flame Refractories, Inc.

In 1992, Dick decided to go into business for himself and founded Storm Technologies, Inc. Nearly three decades later, Dick has built a company from a small office out of his home to a multi-million dollar global company of engineers and combustion specialists. Nowadays, Dick remains an active senior consultant within the company and the power industry along with assisting with educational seminars and mentoring others in what he has learned over the many decades in the power industry.

With Storm Technologies approaching its 30th year in business, Dick’s son, Danny, has continued with similar business practices and now heads up Storm Technologies as the President and CEO. Danny has over 30 years of experience in the power industry and has worked from a field service engineer at Flame Refractories to his current position at Storm Technologies.
