On-site recycling with Komatsu’s equipment
Montgomery, Ala.-based David Jordan & Company, one of the leading demolition contracting firms in the region, recently completed its first “green” demolition project. It was for the Alabama Association of Realtors’ new headquarters building in Montgomery.
The job consisted not only of tearing down the existing building and doing a total site renovation, but also required that demolished material be reused for the new construction. In order to do that, David Jordan turned to Tractor & Equipment Company and Sales Rep Doug Stone for a Komatsu BR380JG mobile crusher to handle the on-site recycling.
“The BR380JG really did a great job turning the existing asphalt and concrete into base material for the new building and parking lot,” said Adam Hilyar, who runs David Jordan & Company’s concrete crushing crew. “It handled the material easily.”
David Jordan & Company, which also has a C&D landfill and operates a nine-truck, 450-roll-off container service for customers within a 100-mile radius of Montgomery, has been a longtime customer of TEC.
“TEC was willing to work with me from the beginning, back in 1985, when I was a start-up operation and needed a machine repaired just to survive that year,” said Owner David Jordan. “They’ve been a great partner ever since. Today, we have a number of Komatsu excavators (including a new PC300LC-8), as well as the crusher.”
In addition to a work force of about 25 employees, Jordan credits his wife, Amanda, who runs the office, for helping to make the business a success. “It’s definitely a team effort. Our goal is to always work hard and go the extra mile for our customers.”
With that attitude, the future looks bright for David Jordan & Company. “We think ‘green’ demolition is the coming thing. With our BR380JG and our experience on the Association of Realtors project, we’re optimistic about what lies ahead for our company.”
