Jim Riordan is a man of action, and he does not dread hard work. Since establishing Riordan Grain Services in 1996, he has stayed true to the principles that have seen his business become a leading force in Australia's agricultural industry - and he has no intention of going astray.
Celebrating the company's 15th anniversary in 2011, Jim Riordan has not lost sight of the qualities that helped him write a story of success - a passionate ethos and personal discipline. "You have to believe in the way you have chosen, even if you receive a setback," he says. "And you need to find people who share the same vision."
Since 1996, Jim Riordan's vision has comprised of a quest for a more profitable way to transport grain.
"Hamelex White demonstrated intimate knowledge of the agricultural industry," says Jim Riordan.
After Jim Riordan purchased the VBH site, adding silo and shed storage to the business, the story of success commenced. Storing and transporting malt barley, the business grew in volumes and extended into a grain trading business. In 2003, Riordan began to pack containers for export clients, which in peak periods saw the Lara site receiving and packing grain 24 hours a day.
Today the company has many facets and operates a fleet of 11 company trucks and 30 trailers. Dispersed among three major divisions - Grain Trade, Grain Storage, and Transport - Riordan employs 35 people. The in-house container division is packing up to 9000 containers per annum with grain for export markets; acquiring international renown for being a specialist in wheat and malt barley marketing; and the supply of grain, pulses, protein meals and grain-related services. The company's main site in Lara allocates 25,000 tonnes of storage space, as well as short-term storage options in 8 x 400 tonne silos. In addition, Riordan operates 7500 tonne silo storage at Lake Cargelligo in northern NSW and 22,000 tonne silo and bunker storage at Balliang 60km west of Melbourne.
"15 years ago, Jim Riordan started out with one combination, and today Riordan Grain Services maintains a large transport fleet of modern, mass management accredited vehicles.
Therefore we do not stop exploring new opportunities to add benefits to the business," says Jim Riordan. "We're looking for new PBS applications all the time, trying to make the development of special equipment work along with the authorities. According to the NTC's Twice the Task report, the land transport task will almost double until 2020. Off-the-shelf one-size-fits-all vehicles will not be able to cope with this development."
In fact, Jim Riordan is already looking forward to the next 15 years. "Riordan will not stray off the path, but stick to the values that have brought us this far.
