In 1951, Richard “Red” Peters bought a gravel truck and started hauling for excavation firms in and around Green Bay, WI. In 1967, he added a truck loader and started doing excavation work himself. A year later, in 1968, he incorporated the business under the name of Red’s Excavating.
Today, Red’s Excavating is still in business in Green Bay. That longevity is something in which Red’s three sons, who are the present-day owners of the company, take a lot of pride.
“Many excavation companies have come and gone during the last 40 years,” says Mike Peters, who today is the President of Red’s Excavating, Inc. “I think our experience and the length of time we’ve been in business is one of our strengths. General contractors know us and they know we are going to be here next year and the year after that, so they trust us and trust the work we do.”
Mike, his twin brother, Mark, and their brother, Russ, are equal owners of Red’s Excavating, Inc. Mark and Russ are the Vice Presidents.
Red’s Excavating, Inc does any and all types of excavation work, as well as demolition. The company services Green Bay and the Fox Valley areas. We do site preparation, including sewer and water laterals, for home excavations, commercial buildings and industrial sites. Residential is traditionally our main business; however, we’ve done a fair share of commercial work and expanded our list of services. For example, we’ve formed a partnership with a local plumber to do septic systems and we are experienced in doing some road building as well.
