2009, the 125th anniversary of the Myers family
In this day and age, 125 years of business is an
accomplishment few American companies can claim. On a
daily basis, we hear doom and gloom about the economy,
companies laying off employees, or shutting down
Water is our most precious commodity, and for 125 years the
Myers family has focused on and become a full service,
water well drilling company serving the Eastern United
States. The company headquarters are in Glenmoore,
PA; with a division in Frederick, MD; and another
division in Manahawkin, NJ.
In 1884 Edward Myers founded E.G. Drillers. Originally a
boiler factory worker, Edward learned well drilling as a
side job, eventually purchased a well drilling company
and moved it to Salunga , Pennsylvania. Edward had five
sons, all of whom entered the family business, which
became known as E.G. Myers and Sons.
Rapid growth was fueled by railroad contracts, obtained by
when the Pennsylvania Railroad was under construction in the
Lancaster County PA. region. When Edward retired, the
company split up and son Charles formed C.L. Myers and set up business in Coatesville
PA. Charles’ son Leroy joined his father by working in
the water well drilling company which eventually became
known as Lee Myers and Sons.
Continuing the tradition, Leroy’s son Barry became a well
driller, actually forming his own company, B.L. Myers
and Sons, at age 18.
Today, his brother Gregg, and son David, operate B.L.
Myers Bros. companies along the east coast, specializing
in environmental, municipal, and residential drilling
plus pump water conditioning installations. David and
