About STARC Systems
STARC Systems was founded in 2012 by Tim Hebert, co-owner of Hebert Construction, a 4th generation family-owned construction business in Maine. Hebert created STARC based on the need he had to reduce the disruption of healthcare renovations by improving the building of temporary containment during occupied hospital renovations. Traditionally, drywall is used which is noisy, dusty, labor-intensive and environmentally harmful. STARC’s reusable modular solutions improve patient and employee satisfaction with quick and easy installation and superior appearance while providing years of ongoing cost savings. With growth across all 50 states and several international countries, STARC Systems was named to INC. Magazine’s 2019 Top 500 fastest growing companies.
