Our Commitment to Excellence

With 35 years of excavating experience guiding them, Harold and Beverly Wiker established H.L. Wiker and Sons, Inc. in 1988. With an eye on future growth and acknowledgement of the second-generation assuming leadership roles, the company name shifted to H.L. Wiker, Inc. in 2006. Today, we stand strong on the firm foundation that was built so many years ago and it’s this same strong foundation that has led to continued excellence today. Our Founder’s philosophy of “it takes five times as much effort to acquire a new customer as it would have to keep an existing customer happy” is still relevant today and is why we pride ourselves in the relationships we build with our customers. We are truly invested in all projects, no matter the size, and we believe that strong relationships between all teams is the foundation for a successful project. In fact, some of the same customers we served back in 1988, when our business started, are still working with us today. Read some of our Testimonials here.

Your satisfaction is our #1 priority. We take pride in our responsiveness, personalized service, quality of work, fairness in pricing, and commitment to excellence. We provide value engineering to customers to help save you money without sacrificing quality.

"We truly believe that excavating is much more than moving dirt. As our tagline states, H.L. Wiker is 'Where Excavating Solutions Begin.' We believe that teamwork, creative problem-solving abilities, and integrity in every aspect of our business is what makes H.L. Wiker an industry leader. My father, Harold, set the standard of excellence that will continue to guide our relationships with our customers, employees and community. That's a tradition we will always honor."
Donna Shoff, President
