Building Partnerships Since 1970
As we celebrate our fiftieth year in business, the entire team at J.R. Johnson would like to express our sincerest appreciation to you, our clients, for your loyal support through the years.
J.R. Johnson was founded in 1970 in Portland, Oregon, with the first office and shop located on NE Killingsworth. In April 2018, Andrew Johnson sold the company, allowing Clint Arp and Del Starr to lead the company as co-presidents and equity partners. In 2019, two new departments were added to the list of services including a roofing department and an abatement department. These two additions make J.R. Johnson a full-service construction and restoration company.
Our commitment for the last 50 years to our core values, the tenure of our team and providing the highest quality of work to our clients.
Focusing on the new decade, J.R. Johnson will continue to pride ourselves on building meaningful relationships with our clients, while providing quality workmanship.
We thank you and look forward to a successful 2020.
Clint Arp and Del Starr
Co-Presidents of J.R. Johnson
Greetings to our industry partners and friends!
J.R. Johnson, LLC has some great news to share with you. JRJ has partnered with Bassett Creek Capital to become part of the Bassett Creek restoration platform. This partnership is great for everyone within JRJ and our friends in and out of Oregon.
JRJ started 48 years ago and we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality work. JRJ’s partnership with Bassett Creek will allow us to continue providing high quality work to you, the resources to expand our labor and talent pool, as well as provide us opportunities to provide coverage and services in additional areas.
As part of Bassett Creek’s investment, Clint Arp and Del Starr are now officially Presidents and equity partners. Andrew Johnson will serve as an advisor to the JRJ management team and will continue to be a resource for JRJ’s clients and employees. Andrew has contemplated this transition for many years and has worked diligently to ensure that the process is smooth and well thought out. You will not see any difference in the way JRJ provides services.
We are very excited about our new institutional support but want to emphasize JRJ will not change: there is no name change, no personnel changes, and no changes in how we provide services and communicate with you.
The whole JRJ family is motivated and excited about the Bassett Creek partnership. We look forward to the continued and future partnerships with you. We encourage people to reach out to the three of us if you have any questions.
We want to thank you all of you for the years of trust and support.
