HISTORY OF MJR ENTERPRISE LLC
The Late Edward Roane Sr.
MJR Enterprise LLC was founded in 2001, however, its history goes back as far as 1970.
Mr. Edward Roane Sr. founded his painting contracting company in the early 1970s. He was one of the few African American entrepreneurs at that time with a sparkle in his eyes; he was determined to be his own boss and self-sufficient. Although he had no formal training in painting, it was obvious that the techniques required were inherent. The Late Mr. Edward Roane Sr. worked as a short-order cook and then in the parts department at a car dealership. By being in that environment, the fiery passion for entrepreneurship began to spark in his soul.
My older brother and I helped our father build his painting business. We learned how to speak to business prospects and treat customers with the uttermost respect through his example. During that time I didn't know that I was being trained.
As I grew older my dad took me out into the field training me in the art of painting. The painting craft was inherent to my father. Soon he realized that I was a naturally gifted painter also. It was my job to paint everything low with great care. As my skill increased, my responsibilities increased. My father trained my brother and me how to properly set up a 40-foot ladder without any help as teenagers.
We also later learned contracting services which included exterior concrete work, brickwork, vinyl siding, window installation, stucco, roofing, custom raw iron fabrication, door installation, and fencing installation. Along with interior services which included plumbing, electrical, carpentry, insulation, custom tile work, custom mud shower pans, kitchen and bathroom digital design, kitchen and bathroom remodeling, drywall, custom granite installation and fabrication, hardwood floor installation, laminate floor installation, ceramic floor, and wall tile installation and extensions.
Nonetheless, for the past several years we have primarily focused on condominiums' premium kitchen and bathroom remodeling.
