Our Story

Read More

Ford Development Corp. builds every project on a foundation of quality.  Since the company was founded nearly 30 years ago, we have literally been "building bridges to the future" and expanding our services to meet the needs of our clients today...and tomorrow.  Our service and expertise have evolved from underground site excavation to complete design/build construction services.  Whatever the scope of the project, Ford Development Corp. has earned a reputation for doing excellent work.  Through Ford Development Corp. and our sister entity, Trend Construction, we can handle both union and non-union work.

Every project begins with one consistent goal -  to provide customers with the best service, and high quality workmanship.  We cost-manage each project, overseeing construction form start to finish to ensure it's done right.  Consistency is the key.  The engineer/project manager who handles the initial bidding and project scheduling follows through  with daily supervision of construction and financial progress to be sure it is on budget and on time.

Our commitment to quality has helped us develop long-standing business relationships.  We value our customers and our employees and we strive to treat them the way we want to be treated.  the results?  A lot of business form repeat customers and quality work form a loyal, experienced staff.  Customers feel comfortable working with us because they trust our field and office staff and can count on us to produce quality work.  Our relationship with our hardworking staff is equally strong.  Ford's employee turnover rate is less than three percent - an unusually low rate in the construction field.
Ford Development Corp. has complete design/build construction capabilities - building quality form the ground up.  Using a turnkey approach, we can oversee and construct complete facilities, putting together a design/build team to take a project form concept to completion.
We specialize in underground site utility construction but have expertise in other areas such as:

complete design/build construction


structural, specialty and flatwork

concrete work

complete site development

plant maintenance

We have the manpower and equipment to handle a wide range of projects.  We are not dependent upon subcontractors.  We own and maintain our own equipment, including Bobcats, backhoes, trucks, 180,000-pound hydraulic excavators and whatever it takes to get the job done.  We continually invest in new equipment to meet our customers' needs.  Ford crews can manage and equip more than 30 projects at any given time using more than 174 pieces of company-owned equipment.
We create individualized, experienced teams for each project.  Through our five service divisions, we have the ability to bring a project out of the ground form initial concept design to finished drawings and the finished project.  Most of this work is done in-house, utilizing the talents of our own diversified work force.
