Who We Are

General History

1026073_716243825063611_397452730_oBarry and Deb Schlouch founded Schlouch Incorporated in 1983 in the basement of their home in Berks County, Pennsylvania to do excavating and utilities. They didn’t own any equipment at the time and had no firm jobs on the books. Schlouch’s first job in 1983 was a $15,000 assignment to prepare a site for Wendy’s Restaurant in West Reading. Since then, they have gone on to add design, survey, blasting, concrete and paving. Their vision and confidence was the beginning of what has become one of the leading total site preparation specialists in Eastern Pennsylvania.

Today, Schlouch is a company with 250 employees and 300 plus pieces of equipment including 150 pieces of heavy equipment. The company enjoys repeat business from most major local and regional owners, developers and contractors as well as from many national firms handling construction management in the area. More than 60% of Schlouch’s business each year comes from repeat customers, a testimonial to Schlouch’s quality work, on-time performance and competitive pricing.

Schlouch has never lost sight of its roots. While the company receives many multi-million dollar contracts each year, Barry and Deb are proud to say that their firm still does excavation for basements and small residential and commercial projects and has a skilled team with their own equipment just to handle those tasks.
