Cooper Rail Service was founded in 1982 by Charles “Sonny” Cooper with one backhoe and a dump truck. We began building short sidings and spur tracks along with performing backhoe work for the local track and bridge railroad departments.
In 2007, brothers Kit and Ryan purchased Cooper Rail Service from their father and have grown the business considerably. The business provides high-quality track and bridge build & repair for railroads across the Midwest.
We’ve helped countless governmental, agricultural, and industrial customers complete successful projects through our contracting services by providing excavation, demolition, rigging services, bridge design & builds, ditching, and site work. That’s why we expanded our business to Cooper Contracting.
We want to help you complete your next project on time, on budget, and above expectations. Talk to our experienced team today!
