Celebrating 60 Years of Business!
Shortly after the 50th anniversary, Jorgensen engaged in a “green” initiative by moving forward in a partnership with Alliance AutoGas. Jorgensen worked with Alliance and orchestrated a plan to reduce greenhouse gases in Fort Lauderdale and Treasure Coast, FL by switching to propane for fuel. The Road Ranger Service Patrol fleet helps improve highway safety for emergency responders and the motoring public; they provide limited roadside assistance free of charge. Jorgensen operates with a fleet of 40 vehicles between the two projects. Each truck travels about 100,000 miles per year. Together, Alliance AutoGas and Jorgensen have been able to reduce harmful emissions to our environment by converting our Road Ranger Vehicles to use propane. This initiative was recognized and shared at the Work Truck Show in 2019. By the end of 2020, Jorgensen celebrated the refueling of its one-millionth gallon of propane Autogas!
In the last 10 years, Jorgensen has nearly doubled in size to over 700 employees today. This growth has led to new projects, new faces, and new departments. The firm has established HR,
Training, and Safety departments to improve and refine internal operations for employees. With expertise in maintenance management, the firm has reduced costs and improved efficiency for public and private sector clients by leveraging consulting expertise into contracting success. Jorgensen has established new highway maintenance roots in Denver, CO, Richmond, VA, the DC area, San Antonio, TX and most recently, Tampa, FL.
The past 60 years have provided interesting and tough challenges to the firm’s management and staff. Roy Jorgensen Associates, Inc. as come a long way since the small office in Bethesda, MD. The Coronavirus pandemic was a different curveball no one could have predicted. As the world shut down, Jorgensen had to adapt to the constantly changing environment; identified as essential personnel, the Jorgensen team worked together and remained dedicated to new sanitation procedures, social distancing, and additional PPE requirements. Everyone chipped in to help mitigate the spread while continuing to deliver services to clients.
Today’s successes are the result of the efforts and dedication of many current and former employees who shared Roy’s vision of improving every client’s operation and management capabilities. As we step into a new normal after the COVID-19 pandemic, Jorgensen continues to pursue new opportunities. We cannot predict what the next 10 years will bring, but we do know that we have a staff with the energy to face the challenges and opportunities as they emerge.
