I feel that our customers will remain in good hands with the McCarthy family.”
The TSS Group, LLC, owned and operated by John Morrone Jr. will now be focused on services related to quarry maintenance and fabrication, quarry personnel, short- and long-term staffing, mobile heavy equipment repair, hydraulics repair, and hose repair sales and service.
