When you work with Formtech, you work with a family business.  By interacting with us, you will work with a small, tight-knit group with vast capabilities.  To ensure that you receive great service and high quality products, it’s important that we get to know you and your products.  But, we also want you to get to know us, too.  Learn about our family through our Blog Series: Getting To Know The Formtech Family, by meeting Sam Jordan!

What is your name and job title at Formtech?

Sam Jordan- Quality Manager for our Athens, GA plant


What role does your job play in the Formtech process?

As the quality manager, I find myself involved with many different aspects of the business.  My job is to ensure that Formtech is meeting the standards of our customer expectations and be committed to improving business performance.


Who do you work with on a regular basis?

Due to the nature of my position I work with everyone across all departments, as well as, customers.


What is your proudest moment at Formtech so far?

I would say my proudest moment at Formtech would be when we were able to take our plant to ZERO customer returns a couple of years past.  I did not do this alone, it took all of us working together to achieve it.  It made me extremely happy to get there.


What do you like to do when you’re not at work?

I have recently embraced a healthier lifestyle.  With that, running has become a hobby of mine.  I like to travel to different races and compete against myself.  Last year my goal was to complete a half marathon (13.1 miles) race every month.  In 2019, I will tackle my 1st full marathon (26.2 Miles) in Las Vegas.


What are the top 3 highlights of your life?

  1. Losing 243 lbs.
  2. Running 2124 miles in 2018
  3. Every time I do something I never thought I would be able to do becomes a new highlight!


Finish this sentence: “Three things people would be surprised to know about me include…”

I cry at sappy movies (I am not afraid to admit it), I love all animals, and I have a running shoe addiction.


What was your favorite childhood gift that you ever received?

The complete metal cast Voltron set and the original NES!


What do you like best about working at Formtech?

I like the people I work with the most.  Formtech is a small company so we are a tight group.


What is something people might not know about Formtech?

I think people would be shocked at the amount of work that goes into making some of the profiles that we produce.


What are you having for dinner tonight after work?

If I had to guess, I would say some grilled chicken and a vegetable of some sort or a taco


What dessert would you have magically appear afterwards, if you could pick?

S’MORES are my favorite!!!!!
