The philosophy of the company can be best understood by looking at the history of The Team involved in managing EzeBreak:
EZEBREAK has assembled a talented team with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise to implement a strategic growth plan. Team members include the following:
Carroll Bassett is the inventor of the Micro-Blaster™ product line and founder of BMS, which developed the current Micro-Blaster™ systems. BMS was originally formed in 1981 to design and produce forged and fabricated metal furniture and sculpture. In the early 1990s, BMS began transitioning to the design of rescue equipment and other niche market products.

In 2005, Mr. Bassett was nominated by the Tech Museum of Innovation, San Jose, CA, as a Laureate in the Economic Development Category. In the fall of 2006 the Micro-Blaster line of products was licensed to Ezebreak LLC as the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of the line of rock and concrete breaking equipment.
