The Legend of Rowan

Front Cover
Write Stuff Enterprises, 1998 - Business & Economics - 192 pages
Rowan Companies grew from the dreams of two Texas brothers, Charles and Archibald Rowan, and their $16,000 oil rig. The two men started out as roughnecks, and founded the company in 1923. The men formed a lifelong partnership based on hard work, loyalty to their workers and cost-conscious business sense. Rowan Companies today builds and operates huge offshore drilling rigs and owns a fleet of helicopters and airplanes that provide services as varied as medical flights and Alaskan sightseeing tours. Relive the struggles and stories in the pages of The Legend of Rowan. Individually boxed.
