Our Team

Arda Ozum, P.Eng

President & Founder
Arda is the President and Founder of BoltRail. Arda oversees the business, including sales, engineering, and product development. Arda is a Professional Engineer and began his career as a Design Engineer with a structural engineering firm. In 2005, he decided to branch out independently and established Acius Engineering. After repeatedly witnessing the result of poorly set anchor bolts in concrete, Arda set out to design a solution. After eight years of design refinements, patent registrations, prototype development, and field trials, Arda launched the BoltRail template system. As BoltRail grew and became established, there also came a need for custom variations of BoltRail, so in 2023, Arda launched BoltRail Custom Shop. Arda is a proud papa to four children and enjoys spending time with his family, and if there is any time left in his schedule, he loves a chance to get behind the lens of his camera.
