Goodea Construction Company was founded in 1960 by Richard Goodwill and Thomas Gildea. Richard and Tom combined their expertise in estimating/project management and field engineering/supervision to create a dynamic company. From the very humble beginnings of building new steps for the Meadville Tribune to the hundreds of successfully completed projects, Goodea Construction Company continues to be a successful contractor in the tri-state area. Goodea Construction Company has concentrated its efforts on commercial, industrial, and institutional construction and utilizing a union workforce.


Pipeline Systems, Inc. was founded by Mark Gildea to provide construction services to the oil and gas industry in the Appalachian Basin. The primary focus was on building gas gathering systems and setting up tanks, units, and wellheads for the booming Medina gas play in northwestern Pennsylvania. 

During a downturn in the oil and gas industry in the late 1980s, the company diversified into municipal water and wastewater projects.
