Motto: “Everything to Build With”
About Us: Frank Orin Barden was born on February 3, 1876 in a log cabin on his parents farm in Crockery Township, Michigan. F.O. learned a good hard work ethic helping with the family farm, but then, took off at an early age to work as a lumberjack at lumber camps around Michigan. F. O. received business training at Davenport Institute in Grand Rapids. He worked for the Michigan Trust Company and was commissioned, in 1916, to reorganize the Boyne City Railroad and Boyne Lumber Company and in 1922 opened F.O. Barden & Son. In 1936 the youngest son Al came on board and worked with his father until 1951 when F.O. passed away. Al ran the company until he semi-retired in 1975. F.O. Barden & Sons have survived two fires, one in 1969 that destroyed only part of the building but the one in 1979 was a total loss. Now, in 2007 F.O.’s grandson Ed Barden and his son Paul are at the helm and still providing the same helpful, courteous service.

Socks Kick is a Michigan based company formed by former Rotary Exchange Student Baris Atmaca from Turkey. After visiting East Jordan numerous times over the years with his family the idea of forming a company in Northern Michigan has become a reality
For the past 35 years his family has manufactured socks and legwear. The company does a full cycle of production; starting from knitting, finishing, packaging, inspecting, marketing and exporting. All of their socks are knitted on authentic vintage machines using only the finest quality yarns made for a superior fit and finish. They provide a refined feel that is immediately noticeable to the touch.
The company aims to expand statewide and nationally. Their next step after this will be to move some of the production from Turkey to here to make MADE IN U.S.A. socks. With the support of the community Socks Kicks expects to expand while increasing local investment and creating jobs.
