We started out as a small family business, building our brand one client at a time. Since then, we’ve grown into something much larger, but our core values remain the same. As a company, we value Family, Safety, Quality and Community. Our philosophy is very simple, "A strong company is built on integrity" and we apply that philosophy to our employees, vendors, clients and communities.

In growing our family of employees and clients, we’ve expanded our business model as well. With the establishment of sister companies like LS1 Industries, and SafetyTech, LoneStar has made it a top priority to be at the forefront of Pipeline Construction, Facility Construction, Renewable Energy, Horizontal Drilling, Maintenance & Integrity, Right of Way Clearing, Safety, Diversity and the first in the industry to offer Financing Options. You could say, we like to see a project through from start to finish to ensure our clients are receiving the utmost quality in the services we are providing every step of the way.

Our people are what drives us, and we are proud to have assembled such a diversified management team with an eclectic mix of industry experiences. Part of what makes us a great partner is our ability to bring new ideas to the industry. From unique software applications that help run our projects more efficiently to customized safety software that help keep our jobs accident free, LoneStar is truly unique.

We also try to be efficient in all aspects of our business. From back office to field operations, we are very aware of our cost structure. We use "smart" data to reduce costs and pass those savings onto our clients, so we can offer the same services and quality at a lower cost.

LoneStar values family, that’s why we make it a number one priority for our employees to return home to theirs safely every day. We are always looking for ways to improve our safety culture, which is why we work so closely with our sister company, SafetyTech. This partnership  helps to ensure LoneStar is always trained in utilizing the most advanced safety and technology solutions. With a consistent TRIR score at or under 0 over the past 5 years, and over 1.5 million hours without an OSHA recordable in the last 2.5 years, our clients rest easy knowing that LoneStar brings a higher level of security and reduced risk to every site.

Additionally, LoneStar is an environmentally conscious company that makes every attempt to prevent harm to the environment. We employ environmental experts to help assist is decision making and uphold environmental standards.

We live up to our values at LoneStar and look forward to serving our clients, our family,  to the best of our ability.
