Owner Kevin Mytty acquired Western Excavating in 2004 to serve the excavating needs of his developments. The business quickly grew as we invested in equipment and extended our expertise in the areas of utility work, grading, building excavation, prepping for asphalt and concrete, and curb and sidewalk work.
We now serve a growing number of customers throughout the Missoula and surrounding areas, working with other developers, general contractors, business and home owners, governmental agencies and utilities.
As we have grown, we have expanded our capabilities. In 2015 we acquired a gravel pit south of Lolo to meet the growing demand that our smaller pit was strained to fulfill. We then built a concrete plant and acquired a fleet of concrete mixer trucks, allowing us to provide aggregate materials and pre-mixed concrete to our construction jobs, as well as to other customers.
In 2017, we began operating the facilities previously owned by Old Castle/Jensen at our current location. Our full-service operation includes pre-mix concrete plant, asphalt plant, and aggregate sales, as well as our offices and equipment maintenance shop.
What Makes Us Different?
Simply put, it’s our passion for dirt and our people. We truly love dirt — digging in it, sifting through it, and mixing it with other things. But what gets us up in the morning, is using that dirt to serve the needs of our customers. In every area of our operation, from our construction crews and mixer drivers, to the asphalt plant, premix plant and aggregates sales, our team’s top priority is customer service. We listen to our customers and discover what they want, then take our love of dirt and Western Know-how to deliver the job on time, and on budget. Whether it’s a trench for their water line, a hole for their building, concrete for their patio, or asphalt for their driveway. And that takes an army of skilled and knowledgeable professionals who take pride in their work.
