Rapid growth was fueled by railroad contracts, obtained by
the company 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

pump water conditioning installations.
David and Gregg represent the fifth and
fourth generations of the Myers drilling
family and the sixth is in place with
David Jr, working in the pump division.
