About Olenik Transportation, Earth Works and Road Construction Ltd.

Olenik is one of the largest and leading transport and infrastructure companies in Israel. The company was founded by the late Eliezer Olenik, who immigrated to Israel from Russia shortly after the establishment of the state after his entire family perished in the Holocaust. Eliezer’s greatest wish was to move to the Land of Israel, raise a new generation, and teach his family about the value of life, the sanctity of the homeland, and the importance of giving to others. Soon after immigrating to Israel, he participated in the War of Independence. Upon his release from the IDF, he acquired a truck and began transporting dirt for construction and security purposes. Over the years, Eliezer’s small business grew until, in 1978, he founded the current enterprise, which is engaged in transportation, land transport, and infrastructure development under his full ownership. With time, David and Doron, his sons, joined the business as successors and made it one of the fastest-growing companies in the industry. The company has been approved for government work and holds quality procedures ISO-9001, ISO-18001, ISO-10000.
