Ford Development team recently resolved an issue with the utmost integrity and professionalism.

Thank you!

Ford Development has been a key supplier of ours for 25+ years at Feintool. We can count on them from the beginning to the end of the project. Quality of work and their on-time commitment to us, has been superior to all others.

Our projects consist of repairs and upgrades in and around our multiple buildings. They also lay the foundation of our custom concrete press pits. These press pits need to withstand years of use and need to support our presses, which exceed 100,000 pounds. The pits have been proven to outlast the machines as we continue to replace them with larger units. The pits also play double duty for the enviornment and contain the old press oil. The workmanship has prevented any oil from getting into subsoil. Dimensions and grade are equally important as we are blending the existing floor levels into our new layouts. This needs to be done correctly the first time, because we have machines coming from overseas that need to be installed upon arrival.

We look forward to our future projects with Ford Development, as they continue to contribute to our success!

Ford Development has been our "go-to" contractor for 27 years. There isn't another contractor in the Cincinnati area with the personnel that has the knowledge and expertise we require in large-diameter waterlines.

Due to the fact that a few of our shareholders are P&G, General Electric, and Ford Motor Company, it is essential to have a company that we can trust to be there when we need them, 24/7, and Ford Development has been that company. We do not have the benefit of redundancy in our system, so when something breaks, our system is entirely down. Their responsiveness and commitment to getting the job done allows me to sleep at night, knowing they are only a phone call away.

Ford Development's engineers and field personnel are the best in their fields. I am confident that there isn't a challenge that they cannot resolve.

We are very fortunate to have Ford Development in our corner.

I highly recommend Ford Development.

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.
