OUR STORY

It is no coincidence that we are in the lighting industry. Only someone who has been through the dark can appreciate the light. Foddrill Construction was founded in Chino, California in 1993. Foddrill has been installing street lighting systems throughout Southern California, as well as many other varieties of lighting since they opened.

Foddrill is based on faith and giving back to community. Leonora and her late husband Jimmy Foddrill, began the company in 1993 to realize a dream of starting their own business. Losing a founder can be catastrophic and lethal to a business. Upon Jimmy's death in 2014, Leonora had to make the choice - sell the business or continue running it on her own. Once she saw the faces of her employees - her work family, her path was clear.

Women are not typically found in this industry. This led to the amazement of many that she demonstrated a capacity and a capability for the technical and human-side of the industry.

She implemented a complete different management style and began to break down barriers between management and work force. Empowering her employees to better themselves through training programs, certifications and bidding multiple projects that brought new experiences to her company and  working intensively with her core staff it helped her to become a strong leader to trust her staff to take risks. She brought priorities from her personal life to the business. She made the conscious choice to become a victor not a victim. 

 

 At Foddrill Construction the people are valued, employees are empowered and trusted, and there is a focus on safety and quality. Around three quarters of the staff have been at Foddrill Construction for over 15 years – remarkably high, especially for the industry. Leonora says, "We have retained a large number of our employees for 15 plus years and are committed to them and their families. Our people are our greatest asset. They are the lifeblood of the company."

The story behind the Batmobile

Jimmy Lee Foddrill, 51, of Eastvale, passed away on June 7, 2014 in Upland. He was born April 30, 1963, in Indiana. Jimmy lived in Whittier for 27 years prior to moving to Chino, where he resided for 15 years. The last eight years of Jimmy’s life were spent in Eastvale.

 

Jimmy was a graduate of California High School in Whittier. He then moved on to receive his Contractors License in 1993. Having love for his work, Jimmy was the owner of Foddrill Construction for 23 years. With great faith and being a man after God’s own heart, Jimmy attended Faith Community Church in West Covina and Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills. His adventurous nature brought Jimmy to love surfing. His eye for detail brought him to love working on classic cars; and the hero in him gave him a great fondness for Batman.

 

Jimmy will be lovingly remembered for his charm, humor, and ability to bring happiness to those around him. Jimmy loved his family and leaves behind his wife, Leonora; their children, Kaylee, Derek, and Aaron; his mother, Barbara; his father, Bobby; and eight siblings (Wendell, Barbie, Kitty, Penny, Johnny, Melissa, Boe, and Angie). Jimmy is also survived by four grandchildren. All will cherish his memory.
