Opportunities and challenges—in business, as in life—often go together. Patrick Jordan, president of R. F. Jordan & Sons Construction, Inc., has seen plenty of both while working at his family's firm. But in his years at the helm, he has managed to guide the firm through uncertain economic times to unprecedented growth. R. F. Jordan & Sons does a wide range of site preparation work for private and public customers from its base in Ellsworth, Maine. Patrick's father, Ronnie, the company's founder and semi-retired vice president, credits his son's aggressive attitude and hard work with leading the company successfully into new areas during the 1990s. "When he stepped in, he really took over," Ronnie said. "He got up early and went to bed late at night." Patrick, in turn, says the foundation laid by his father and the lessons learned at his father's side made it all possible. "He gave me a good opportunity, a good name, and a good establishment. It was just a lot of hard work and great, dedicated employees." The family tradition goes back well beyond his father, he pointed out. "My father's father, Asa Jordan, always had a dump truck, and my father always worked with him. He plowed roads and did state jobs." Before that, Patrick's great-grandfather, Harley Grover did work for the state, hauling materials and plowing roads. "Harley started with horses," recalled Ronnie Jordan. "Then he bought a Chevy truck with a wooden dump on it." Ronnie's father, Asa, bought a used 1942 truck to continue the family business. Maintaining relationships that began four generations back, R. F. Jordan & Sons still plows some of the roads and communities that great-grandfather Harley did, the younger Jordan notes with pride.
