Small Call to Action Headline

Finch Excavating is a family owned and operated business with sole intention to revolutionize the way excavation services are brought into the marketplace. One of our core beliefs is that each project has it's own story and it's own purpose meaning it must be handled as if this were our own personal projects we are completing. We understand that our customers are choosing us to not only get the job done right but also aid them in achieving a desired outcome. We understand that not everyone is well versed in the typical terminology and the entirety of the process when it comes to getting their project completed which is why we value communication to the highest degree. Customers should feel as though they are in full control of their project and are aware of every step we take in our process to ensure we surpass their expectations.

Over the course of the years we have not only seen consistent growth throughout our organization but have noticed that time and time again most large scale companies are strictly focused on the bottom line in a sense how big they can make their margins. Here at Finch excavating our focal points are the customer experience from start to finish as well as the quality of work we conduct, not just getting the job done right but going the extra mile for our customers delivering results that exceed the expectations of each and every individual we do business with. We truly believe when you take the extra steps in every aspect of the transaction Finch Excavating will be known for much more than just another excavation team completing your project.

Vision, Purpose & Values

What We Stand For


Our long term vision for Finch Excavating is not just to simply become the #1 trusted excavation company in the state of Minnesota but to continuously maintain the family oriented atmosphere throughout the entirety of our growth. We don't want to become one of those organizations that grows so big that the initial home town feeling goes away where we are just people at a company chasing dollars. This organization was created to sustain countless generations of our family to continue to bring a world class experience in the excavation space for our customers for multiple decades to come.


Simply put we identified a gap in the marketplace when it came to delivering high quality services combined with an exceptional customer experience. It is few & far in

between that truly maintain a family oriented atmosphere on top of a customer satisfaction centered operation especially here in Minnesota. We wanted to take that next step in becoming the #1 trusted service provider in the state & have the opportunity to pass down something through countless generations of Finch's that not only enjoy the work but truly love the value that we provide to customers throughout MN.

We want to give our customers not just a world class experience from that intial conversation to post project completion but really offer our customers the opportunity to get to know who exactly they are dealing with. We aren't your typical hide behind the camera organization we value being personable and transparent.

Quality Service

We believe it's not enough to just complete the project. In order to grow the way we see fit it's our responsibility to go that extra mile to convey an all class exerience from the products we use to the service we provide even the customer experience in itself.

Morality & Honor

We look at our work through a lense of "how would I treat this customer if this was my 80 year old grandmother?" Now you may chuckle a bit at this saying but in all reality you would never treat your family poorly and you would proceed with the upmost care and caution ensuring that family memeber is taken care of with respsect as well as integrity when it comes to how we conduct our business. Which is exactly how we treat each and every customer with their project.
