Perseverance, Repeat; Perseverance, Repeat: An 18 Year Journey of Excellence

Perseverance Word Circle Concept18 years ago Lord & Company did one of its first projects in the Carolinas for the City Havelock, NC.  I doubt anyone with the City knows of the impact this project had on the company financially. The City had no fault in the losses. In short it was a resounding financial disaster.  The profit from the project was close to (-100%).  That’s right we lost as much money on the project as the original project value. You may be able to find some folks with the City who remember that we still did our best work on their project.  Through the years L&C consistently strives to deliver our best work.  Fast forward 18 years and another project for the City of Havelock, here is what they are saying today.

“Lord & Company and staff have done an excellent job on the water treatment plant upgrades. They worked right through any problems that arose and the system works better than it ever has. I congratulate Lord & Company on an outstanding job performed for the City of Havelock.” David Hemingway

I have been in this business for 25 years and have never seen a perfect project, but when you persevere and repeat they come out win-win.  We are appreciative to our clients like the City of Havelock who have given us the chance to repeat. Thank you to Team L&C who day in and day out put in the work and persevere. You make the journey of excellence possible.
