Beaver spent his entire professional career with Carpenter, building it into one of the largest suppliers of specialty metal products in the United States. During his tenure as CEO, he nearly tripled revenues from roughly $150 million to over $400 million and quadrupled earnings. His strict adherence to cost-effective investment enabled the company to not only survive but also to prosper during the recession of the late 70s.
