Our History

Coughlin Company was established in 1921 by Louis Joseph Coughlin. Located in Southern California, the company built water utilities and also owned and operated several water companies.

After Serving in the Navy during World War II, Donald Wallace Coughlin purchased the company from his father Louis. Donald later founded Waterco, a supply and distribution company. By the mid 1900’s Donald and his sons had served over 300 water system located in California communities, and Waterco was the largest supply company in the area. Donald was a skilled engineer; he has several patents on various plumbing products. He designed complete utilities and furnished all the materials needed for them.

Patrick Joseph Coughlin then bought the Coughlin Company Construction business from Donald. Pat serviced and installed entire water systems. In 1976 Patrick moved the Company to Utah. They did work throughout Nevada, California, and Utah.

Patrick’s son, Darren Joseph Coughlin purchased the company in 1994. Darren converted the company from an underground pipeline company into a Rotomilling, Cold In-Place Recycling, Pulverizing, Soil Stabilizing, and Heavy Haul Company using state of the art, late model equipment. Coughlin Company is based out of St. George, Utah with a second office in Salina, Kansas.
