Over sixty years ago, thirteen year old Jack Dykstra worked on a family farm with his mom in West Michigan. Dairy farming in the early 1930’s was hard work, and young Jack learned the value of long days and the rewards which hard work create early in his life. When he was old enough to make his own decisions about his future, Jack Sr. decided that he’d had enough of milking cows. With $4000.00 he invested in his first bulldozer and dump truck.

Today Dykstra employs 30 people, plus an array of experienced subcontractors. They hire reliable, well trained people to build and maintain their company. They have a fleet of over 50 pieces of grading and earthmoving equipment. Their crews can take a job from rough grading to finished and packed, ready for paving. They utilize computer, sonar, laser and GPS guided grading equipment to make sure that your project is completed right the first time.

Dykstra Excavating is a member of The Association of Builders and Contractors and the Builders Exchange. If your company would like to work with Dykstra’s family team, or invite them to bid on an upcoming project, they can be contacted through these professional organizations.
