WRS is a local Ferndale based company that has been doing business in the local refineries as well as other industries in the Pacific Northwest for more than 30 years.

Excavation, asphalt paving, concrete work, land clearing, fencing, site preparation, demolition, environmental cleanup and transportation services are just a few of the services we provide.

This diversity of our work gives us the ability to self-perform a large percentage of our work allows us to maintain better control of safety, budget, schedule and quality.

These services are provided to many Pacific Northwest companies such as BP Cherry Point Refinery, Phillips 66 Ferndale Refinery, Shell Puget Sound Refinery, Tesoro Anacortes Refinery, Puget Sound Energy, Alcoa Intalco, Olympic Pipeline, Kinder Morgan to name a few.

WRS takes pride in our 200 plus employees. We believe we have hired some of the best in their respective fields and have provided them with some of the best possible training to prepare them for their work at WRS. All employees take safety very seriously and understand that safety takes precedence over schedule or budget or any other pressure. The health and Safety Department has 8 full time employees performing audits, training and working to ensure all employees are performing their task in a safe manner.

Our on-boarding philosophy includes innovative programs combined with comprehensive site specific awareness training that allows us to be successful at each individual site.

We hire locally; our employees live here, raise their families here, make their homes here and care about this community.

We have volunteer firefighters, we sponsor sports teams, contribute to non-profits and clubs and volunteer within the companies that we work for. The first page of our employee handbook states “The growth of any business like ours depends on its employees: people with initiative, ambition and enthusiasm, working in an atmosphere of harmony for our common success”.
