Lyons & Hohl began operations in 1978. For their first job, Greg Lyons and Ron Hohl installed a water main near Downingtown. They moved on to installing sewer laterals in Honey Brook, where they based their new company. Soon afterward, the partners progressed into site development work, with their first such job near Shillington. Gradually, they began doing more complete site work projects; the majority of these were in Chester County, but jobsites could be found in Berks, Lancaster and Montgomery counties as well.
From the beginning, Greg and Ron followed a philosophy of slow, steady growth. They hired people and acquired equipment gradually, always trying to strike a balance between satisfying customer needs and maintaining a solid foundation to weather the ups and downs of the construction business.
In 1989, Lyons & Hohl took advantage of an opportunity to expand into the paving business. Roger Fox joined Greg and Ron in forming Lyons & Hohl Paving. Under Roger's direction, the paving operation has followed the Lyons & Hohl pattern slow, steady growth. This had led to paving jobs large and small throughout Lancaster and Chester counties.
The Lyons & Hohl organization wants to continue its history of slow, controlled growth. It will face the ongoing challenge of maintaining motivated and satisfied employees, keeping customers happy, and identifying new opportunities for the company.
