About Fossil Rock Services
Fossil Rock Services was founded in 2012 in response to the growing oil and gas industry in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. The expansion of this industry provided a new opportunity for a local company to step up as a locally based provider of high-quality services and sustainable jobs in the region.
Fossil Rock Services takes pride in offering the best people, equipment, and materials available to serve your needs. Our core family team has nearly 100 combined years experience in general construction, heavy civil construction and engineering, earth moving, project coordination, and construction management that will contribute to the success of your project.
With our headquarters near Butler, Pennsylvania and a satellite operations yard near Caldwell, Ohio, Fossil Rock Services is your locally owned, conveniently located energy field support solution.
Whether you need miles of pipelines reclaimed or compost filter sock installed, acres of grass established, access roads constructed, or a commercial renovation completed, our team is ready to support you.
Fossil Rock is your go-to partner for thorough, high quality field construction and reclamation and commercial/industrial maintenance. Fossil Rock delivers not only great results, but also peace of mind.
