Starting Small & Dreaming Big

Moritz Excavating was started by Jack Moritz in 1981 with a 1976 model backhoe, truck, and trailer. Jack was working in trucking and had recently started a family, so he wanted to work more locally. Things didn’t exactly take off as expected though. In his first year, the banks wouldn’t loan him money and he found himself doing all sorts of jobs to provide for his family. 

He got his first job fixing leaks for Barnes County Water but still needed to do more. This led to odd jobs like pulling trees for $50/tree. Through all this hard-work, grit, and smart investments in machinery, Jack was able to land a phone company contract digging trenches for cables. He has now been working with them for 35 years and this proved to be his breakthrough moment.

A New Generation with the Same Goals

In 2010, Tony, Jack’s son, started working for the company full time after graduating from mechanic school. With Tony’s help and decades of quality work, the company has grown to an entire fleet of machines allowing for specialized utility construction services. By building strong relationships with local utility companies, we are now operating with a 100-mile radius of our headquarters. At 73, Jack is still working 10 hour days alongside his son Tony and isn’t showing signs of slowing down.
