SCHLOUCH EXPANDS SITE PREP CAPABILITY BY ADDING CONCRETE DIVISION

BLANDON, PA, February 7, 2000 — Schlouch Incorporated announced today that it has added a Concrete Division to expand its site preparation services for residential and commercial customers.

Barry Schlouch, President of Schlouch Incorporated, said that David Powell has joined the company to launch the division. Prior to joining Schlouch, Powell was an estimator/field coordinator for Rubright Construction for 12 years.

“We are fortunate to be able to attract a man with David’s experience in concrete work,” Schlouch said. “Initially, David will build a team of eight experienced concrete installers to launch the Division.”

In 1998 Schlouch added an Asphalt Paving Division which has been exceptionally successful, according to Schlouch.

“Customers like the efficiency of having complete site preparation capabilities under one roof,” Schlouch said. “This is why our Asphalt Paving Division is so well accepted and why I believe that the Concrete Division will be welcomed by our customers.”

Schlouch said that the Concrete Division will start by offering foundation footers, flatwork and specialty walls for commercial, industrial and institutional buildings, but will expand its range of services as needs are identified.
