About Hjort Excavation Inc.

A 3-generation company that started in 1955 by Russell Hjort, who began with a single axel dump truck and a rubber tired backhoe. Lawrence Hjort took over and expanded by adding an excavator, dozer and a dump truck. Dean Hjort (current owner) has taken over by growing to 25 trucks, numerous pieces of equipment and great work relationships that continue to grow.
