RBI has successfully handled many large, multi-year Federal & State DOT highway retaining wall installation projects throughout the Eastern seaboard including projects in VA, MD, NC, NY, NJ, DE and PA.
RBI works for many of the top companies in the construction industry and counts as its customers some of the largest general contractors, home builders and developers in the country. It has earned its reputation by providing its customers with exceptionally high quality services, installations, expert craftsmanship, competent self-directed project management and timely project completion. As a result, RBI's customers have rewarded the company with continued patronage and sustained business loyalty.
Moreover, RBI has grown into one of the areas largest providers of snow and ice removal services (as well as year-round provider of other emergency services), to some of the regions largest and most successful retail and commercial shopping center owners and property management companies.
In July of 2018, Roche Bros., Inc. moved its headquarters to a new company-owned office building and warehouse on 4-acres in Frederick, Maryland - providing it with the buildings, land and location to expand and sustain its growth. In addition, over the past few years, the company has made substantial investments in heavy equipment, trucks and tools - building corporate capabilities to tackle projects of any size and scale. More importantly, it has added outstanding people to its work force and executive management team.
Acquisition of K&M Dri-Lay - New Pennsylvania Branch of RBI
On January 1, 2019, RBI completed the purchase of the assets of K&M Dri-Lay Masonry, Inc. of Waynesboro, PA. This is very exciting for RBI, its customers, vendors and employees as it immediately gives the company presence in the south-central PA marketplace!
Dave Kirkpatrick, founder of K&M, will continue working with this new division of RBI in an on-going consulting capacity and, importantly, the crews of K&M are now full employees of RBI. The customers of K&M Dri-Lay now have the resources and capabilities of RBI along with the local sales and service of the K&M team. RBI plans to continue using the K&M Dri-Lay name in Pennsylvania for the foreseeable future.
Southeastern Regional Office
In mid-2006, the company opened a satellite office in Nashville, Tennessee. Since then, RBI has experienced solid growth in the Middle Tennessee market and has installed more than 350,000 square feet of retaining walls throughout the area. The company has established excellent relationships with the Tennessee divisions of a number of the largest home builders in the nation and is looking to continue growing its business to other regions in the state.
