About Us


For the past 29 years, American Excavating Corporation has set the gold standard for efficiency and productivity in the fields of earthmoving and utilities construction. Our experienced crews have moved millions of cubic yards of earth, as well as installed hundreds of miles of water, drainage, and sewer pipes below our region’s country roads and city streets.

American Excavating Corp. was formed in 1990 when three brothers took on small excavating jobs in and around the Derry, NH area. As their reputation for excellent workmanship and timely performance grew, their company began to grow as well.


Today, American Excavating Corporation is a dynamic, efficient, and modern company specializing in earthmoving and utilities construction, that engages in all sizes of projects within any of the many different aspects of these fields.
