Get to know Coopersburg Construction:
rooted in the Valley, growing with purpose.

If you want to understand a company, you should look to how it got to where it is today.


Coopersburg Construction began in 1975 as Fred Derby & Son Plumbing. Having lived in Coopersburg for more than 50 years, it was a natural place for Fred to start a business. As the area got to know the Derbys and their work, they began branching out into other parts of the Lehigh Valley.

Throughout the housing boom of the 1980’s, the scope of work the company handled began to change. The focus on plumbing began to expand and soon renovating and building homes was accounting for a large part of the business. The Derbys purchased and developed several tracts and land at about the same time I-78 opened, giving commercial interests in the Valley even more room to grow.


A reputation for quality and a favorable construction market added to the company’s evolution and by 1988, Coopersburg Construction Company was incorporated. President Fred Derby led the company into further growth in the 1990’s and created two divisions that complemented the main construction business — Coopersburg Painting & Paperhanging and Coopersburg Plumbing Company.

Today, the company counts more than twenty employees, a fleet of two dozen silver trucks, and four decades of thoughtful growth as indicators of its stamina and success.

Years of construction experience equate to thousands of days of work. Countless hours of labor. And unlimited opportunities to learn and lead. Over that time, Coopersburg Construction’s people have come to know the business inside out, upside down and backwards.
