We operate in Lancaster, Chester, York, Dauphin, Berks, and Lebanon Counties. Although our work area is typically within 50 miles of Lancaster City, we occasionally make exceptions.
We have been in business for over 80 years and we take pride in our ability to provide our customers with a skilled team of employees to complete projects efficiently and satisfactorily. Our staff is available and capable to offer guidance and assistance through all phases of construction.
Our Estimating Department utilizes computerized software systems to provide accurate takeoffs and estimates during the bidding process. Our software has the ability to use the design engineer’s CAD files to assure that accurate quantities are derived from the takeoffs. This enables us to provide our customers with fair and accurate proposals for the work to be performed.
Our Survey Department gives us the unique ability to provide our own project layout without the potential for delays. We use the design engineer’s CAD information and our GPS survey equipment to provide efficient and accurate stakeout. This assures that the site improvements are constructed in accordance with the intended design.
We have several qualified Job Supervisors with vast knowledge and experience that provide leadership and coordination to assure that our projects are being performed accurately, efficiently, and on schedule.
Leroy and Edith Andrews started the family owned business with a used caterpillar D-2 to do custom farm work for their neighbors in 1936. The business grew into custom weeding and bailing after purchasing the first baler and the first self pro-pelled combine in Lancaster County. In the mid 1950’s, Andrews began clearing land and digging house basements. The company continued to grow, broadening its scope of work into commercial, industrial and residential site preparation. Burnell Andrews joined the business in the early 1960’s and became President in 1983. Leroy continued as chairman of the board until his death in October of 1991. Mark W. Rineer joined the company in 1983, worked his way through the ranks, and became the company Vice President in 1994.
