The Witt Excavating Story

Our Story 3 - Witt Excavating

The company that started as a backyard side business in 1962 has flourished into a business that serves families & businesses throughout Wasatch and Summit Counties. From our roots, Witt Excavating has provided customers with superior & efficient work.

The Early Years

With dedication and hard work Mike Witt began the company, “Witt Excavating” in 1962 as a side job while working at Kennecott Coppermine. As time passed though, Mike’s love of excavating grew and he made the decision to quit the Coppermine. He left and never looked back- giving his family & excavation company full attention.

All of Mike & his wife, Eddis’s children grew up working in the family business but none loved it as much as Russ- even from a young age he could always be found playing in the dirt, fixing tractors, and helping his dad.
