Barry J. Jordan was born in Derby, England in 1945. He left Joseph Wright Art School at 15, and secured an apprenticeship with Rolls-Royce Aero Engine Division, Derby in the experimental department. After developing a range of ultrasonic crack detection equipment used in non-destructive testing, he formed his own company in 1977 to manufacture this equipment.

In 1994, Barry was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. Fearing the worst, he sold the business to Rolls-Royce and Associates, bought a Myford Super 7 lathe, a Raglan milling machine, built himself a workshop and went back to his boyhood love of model engineering.
