History

The Byler family has been a staple in Lebanon County, PA since the 1950s with the creation of Carlos R. Leffler Inc. The company was sold in 1997 and from that sale, Byler Management was formed. Byler Management has been a major presence in the community for two decades, developing real estate and investing in local business projects. Together, John and Jonathan worked in tandem to grow Byler Management and the many companies that it owns and operates.

Originally Byler Holdings started as a golf course business that evolved into a diverse holding company with investments in materials, entertainment, restaurants, snow tubing, and real estate. The Golf Division operations started in 1999 with the purchase of the Lebanon Valley Golf Course. Over the next fifteen years, the company acquired Blue Mountain Golf Course, Iron Valley Golf Club, Broad Run Golfer’s Club, and Berkleigh Golf Club. In 2006, the company created the Entertainment Division with the opening of Penn Cinema in Lititz, adding Penn Cinema Riverfront in 2012, and Huntington Valley Cinema in 2018. In 2007, the company purchased Boger Concrete, creating the Materials Division. The Materials Division has grown to include Merrick Sand & Gravel, Byler Trucking Services, and Byler Quarries.

Expanding since its inception in 2014, Byler Holdings is now managing operations throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and employing over 500 people. The diverseness of the holdings has allowed for complementarity in revenue cycles and cross-utilization of supply chains and assets. Byler Holdings is proud of its prolific history but also committed to the expansion and transformation of the company in the future.
