Our Story

Read More

Barry 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.

Schlouch Incorporated is founded on the premise that we are in business to be profitable and respond to the needs of people, by developing healthy relationships between our people and their families, our customers, vendors, and our communities.

Our working climate is safe, supportive, friendly and non-political in a goal-oriented setting. We encourage and help our team members develop and make best use of their individual talents and potential and compensate team members for their contribution to the Company’s success.

Schlouch Incorporated is a single source provider of quality site design and construction services to residential, commercial, industrial, energy and governmental customers. These activities are performed at prices that promote revenue growth and profit on investment at planned levels.

Our intent is to develop conscientious, ongoing relationships with our customers, by discovering and satisfying their identified and unidentified needs.

We provide and promote a safe work environment and we require each person to think, act, and work safely.

The people of this Company function as a cohesive team of competent individuals dedicated to setting and achieving goals that exemplify the Company’s commitment to this Mission.

We encourage an entrepreneurial spirit, and have an openness to new ideas and innovations. We continually challenge methods and assumptions and caution against complacency.

It is our goal to be a niche provider to the construction industry, by providing high value, quality work and by differentiating our services.

We achieve these Vision Guidelines in an ethical and legal atmosphere, where mutual trust and understanding are practiced. Our ethics are based on being fair and honest with all people. We always follow through with our commitments.

Schlouch Incorporated’s Mission guides the company in all of its decisions and in its behavior toward others be they fellow employees, their families, our customers, our vendors or the general public. It is SI’s road map to success.
