We're a turnkey pipeline contractor with family-based values.

In 1979 in Arnoldsburg, West Virginia, Ronald Lane Incorporated began as a sole proprietorship with “a few pickup trucks, plastic tools and a big dream.” Within two years, the hard work and dedication of a few Ronald Lane employees who are still with us today sparked the company’s growth from a small proprietorship to a partnership, and ultimately to a corporation. Currently with over 100,000 sq ft. of facilities in four separate locations, Ronald Lane Inc. has served the oil and gas industry for 37 years in West Virginia and surrounding states.

In spite of our growth, we’ve never lost sight of our family based values. As a turnkey pipeline contractor, Ronald Lane Inc. employees take personal pride in our work and honor our clients’ project timelines. Above all, Ronald Lane Inc. focuses on safety, environment and quality – the ingredients of a reliable turnkey contractor in the pipeline industry.
