Dear Customers, Colleagues, and Friends,


It is with mixed emotions that we write today to let you know that we will be closing our business this year. This means we will not be taking on any work in the 2019 season, but will honor any warranty work on recently completed projects.


We want to thank you for 52 years of business in this community. We value the relationships we’ve built and will miss the sense of accomplishment we get from working with others who care about quality workmanship. At the same time, we are looking forward to opening a new chapter in our lives. For John and Seeta, this means a retirement that will allow for more golf and time with family and friends. For Ian, this is an opportunity to pursue new endeavours and challenges.


Our business achieved it’s greatest success in recent years, due in part to the three-person leadership team we have. We simply could not picture the future of Ferris Trucking & Excavating without any one of us.


But none of this would have been possible without our incredible staff who have shown up every day fully committed to delivering on the gold seal promise we make to our customers. It has been great learning with you, growing with you, and laughing with you – even through the challenging times. We are here to support you in finding new opportunities in the industry that match your experience and professionalism.


Thank you one and all from the bottom of our hearts for helping us build a business and a career we are incredibly proud of. We know that the man who started it all in 1967 with a single backhoe, Cliff Ferris, would be equally proud.


John, Seeta, and Ian
