An evolved concept

SAN ANTONIO - JCH Construction Inc. has been rock-trenching San Antonio for nearly 30 years. JCH President, Rocky Hill, founded the company after a contractor wanted to rent a trencher from sister company, Rocky Hill Equipment Rentals, but did not want to operate the trencher.





    Seeing a need, Hill hired a man experienced in operating trenchers. “I was just trying to help out a customer,” says Hill.  Soon, there were more calls looking for operators to run trenching equipment on various jobsites.   Obviously, Hill was onto something.
    “Our customers can focus on what they do best and leave the trenching to us. Who better to operate the equipment, than the supplier of the equipment?  We know the equipment, frontwards and backwards. We can save them money as well as help them focus on their specific trade,” says Hill.
     Hill adds that JCH owns no equipment except a few trucks.  JCH rents all their equipment from Rocky Hill Equipment, and gets charged the exact same pricing as any other customer.
     “JCH started out where it was mainly rock trenching,” adds Wes Clark, JCH Construction vice president. “Now it’s moved to 50/50 backhoe and trenching with all these data centers getting into fiber and other technologies requiring more detailed trenching going around pipes and other obstacles.  We kind of found a market place.”
    Starting out with one employee through Rocky Hill Equipment, JCH Construction now has 15 employees.  “Bob Nichols, the original operator, just retired from JCH six months ago,” adds Clark.
    JCH Construction Inc. is a turnkey rock-trenching subcontractor in Selma, TX. -cmw
