Paul Boor

Paul Boor is the Vice President for Engineering Services and Product Development at Lester Building Systems, a firm that designs and manufactures custom agricultural and commercial structures. In that role, he provides oversight for the design and product development process at Lester, from the design engineer’s desk to final plans. “All of our products are unique, built-to-order structures,” he explains. “We always try to understand how new products will fit into the big picture as they are developed.” He says his CALS education helped him to think more broadly about a lot of topics. “Coming from a dairy farm in rural Wisconsin and moving to Madison was an eye-opening experience,” he says. “My education opened doors that otherwise would have been closed.”
