In 1985, two young teenagers began what would turn out to be a productive, multi-faceted friendship while frying fish, at a local restaurant, in high school. Brian Book and Craig Zurman, have remained friends throughout the years and have successfully partnered together to create the company, Book Zurman, Inc.
Shortly after high school and their friendship began, Craig started a successful entrepreneurial career founding a company in the electronics industry that is still in business today. Brian joined the Army and served during the first Gulf War. A service related injury brought his military career to an end and he returned to school to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering and began a 25 year career in the manufacturing industry.
While fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, they developed the idea to start Book Zurman, Inc. It was founded on both men's passion to support our warfighters and the Veterans of the greatest country on earth. The founding mission of the company was to enable the Department of Defense to carry out its mission to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country, and to enable the VA to fulfill President Lincoln's promise, "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan" by serving and honoring the men and women who are America's veterans.
Book Zurman, Inc. was born and to this day we continue to passionately provide solutions that improve the lives, health and future of the members of our military, our veterans and their families. It hasn't always been easy, and we have had many obstacles to overcome along the way, but we continue to strive to improve the future for those that are serving and have served the United States of America.
