To be more efficient Worthington groups similar types of work together. "It's easier and more productive for us if I can group all the trench paving together - even if they're miles apart - and do them in the same day," he says. "That enables us to outfit our trucks for that one type of work. We don't have to take a mix of equipment, and we don't have to carry different types of traffic control equipment. It's easier to plan and execute."
At the end of each day Worthington and Chandler take a look at the next day's work, list all the tools and equipment they'll need for the day, and load the trucks that night. "That way we're ready to go the next morning," he says. "We can just come in and take off. We don't have to waste any time getting ready."
Growth is coming
Worthington is content with the company as it operates right now, but he knows growth is coming, but it's going to come on his terms.
"Things are going to change, and the company is going to grow as Chandler gets more involved," he says. "But our basic business, and the way we go about our business, will not change.
"But when Chandler can take a crew and I can take a crew we can be twice as productive and do twice as much work because we can both be on site, sticking with what we know, and keeping the show moving right along."
