Founded as Western Industrial Maintenance in 1972 with a single office in Paramount, CA, our company specialized in providing maintenance and construction services to refinery, power and industrial clients.

By 1978, we expanded to four offices, adding Richmond, CA; Portland, OR and Mount Vernon, WA to our service area. In 1983, we became Total Services, Inc., and provided construction and maintenance services to Central California.

The Western Companies became affiliated with Bragg Investment Company in 1987, providing direct access to the crane, rigging, heavy equipment and transportation capabilities of the premier crane and rigging company in the Western United States.

Total-Western, Inc. formed in 1995 by combining The Western Companies and Total Services, Inc. In 2013, Total-Western acquired the assets of Gene Watson Construction and began serving the oil fields of Central California.

Today, with five regional locations, highly qualified management, skilled personnel, state-of-the-art equipment and shop facility resources, Total-Western is strategically positioned to provide design, construction, operations and maintenance services to a diverse range of customers in the Western United States and across the country.
