Central Pennsylvania-based RLS Construction Group reached an important milestone on June 11, 2015; celebrating 5 years in business. Founded by Robert L. Schopfer, the company has grown from one employee to a staff of nearly 40, by developing a strong portfolio of completed commercial, healthcare, industrial, institutional and government construction projects.

“Looking back, the time seems to have gone so quickly,” said Schopfer, President and CEO of the firm. “We took the right steps to move the company forward, and we were able to attract great employees and clients along the way, to create something really special.” 

Founded during the worst economic downturn in recent history, Schopfer utilized his 30 years of construction industry experience and developed a reputation for quality, best-value general construction services throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. RLS focuses on trusted partnerships with clients, staff, subcontractors, design firms and the community because building those relationships will drive success for the future.

“I am so proud of what we have been able to accomplish over the past five years,” said Schopfer. “That credit goes to our staff, because they are the key to our success. Exceptional people make exceptional employees who provide exceptional service, and our team is our greatest asset.”
