A Family Owned Company Since 1973.
In 1973, Richard J. Corman, a native of Nicholasville, Kentucky, started doing railroad construction right after graduating high school. In a little over 40 years, he turned a railroad service company with a single backhoe into one of the nation's leading railroad service providers.
Headquartered in Nicholasville, the R. J. Corman family of companies has divisions in 23 states as far west as Arizona, employing approximately 1,400 people.
In 2023 we celebrate 50 years – half a century of stories of people that shaped the company and our industry as we know it. We reflect with gratitude on the legacy of Mr. Corman and many others that contributed to leading R. J. Corman to where we are today. This year, we celebrate today's accomplishments and keep building for a brighter future!
