Ferris Trucking & Excavating is three generations who have worked side-by-side in growing a family business into a respected and trusted name in the excavating industry.


In 1967, “Cliff Ferris & Sons” began with a single backhoe. Today the business hums with numerous pieces of equipment, from trucks, dump trailers, and excavators, to top soil screening equipment and more than a dozen employees.


John Ferris has grown the business with the old fashioned values he learned from his father; work hard, roll up your sleeves, and get the job done.


John’s son Ian was born into this hardworking family and as a boy was never far from his father’s side. Perhaps it is this early exposure that helps to explain why Ian grew to be such an accomplished machine operator, who is today regarded as one of the best in the business.


In fact, when it comes right down to it, the goal to be the best is something we take seriously everyday: to do the best job, for the best price and to be the best partner in any project.


Today the Ferris name is synonymous with exacting quality and integrity. If the Ferris name is on it you know we’ll stand behind it.
