This network would provide service to the community with unsurpassed quality. This network would also provide a better way of life for their employees than available elsewhere in the White Mountains.


Western Grade started small, on a shoestring budget with rental equipment and 5 people. Our hard work, dedication and commitment to success were and remain the keys to our growth.
