Our History

Dig'R Wright Excavating Inc. was first established in 1994 by Lloyd Wright of Chatham, Ontario. The current owner Eugene Hoekstra and his late partner, Andrew Molengraaf, then purchased the company in 2000 with plans to expand the services.


Incorporating in 2004 and with the help of his two sons, Darryl and Jordan, and over 30 years of experience, Eugene has grown the company to be one of the top and most reliable excavation companies in the area.


A company that started with three pieces of equipment and four employees has grown its versatility to 12 pieces of equipment and a range of equipment operators, labourers and truck drivers today.
