The Start – 1953

With a $4,000 bank loan and a few pieces of used equipment, William “Don” Sterling founded The Beaver Excavating Company in 1953.

 

Throughout his career, Don Sterling accomplished many goals, but one principle he consistently strived to deliver was providing the highest quality service at a fair price. The company quickly built a reputation around this guiding principle, which continues today with the third generation of Sterling family ownership.
