About Us

Dave Wright Excavating is a family business you can trust.

Dave founded our company more than 45 years ago with one backhoe. Our company has grown to include a wide range of heavy equipment rentals and services for both homeowners and contractors.

Dave’s son Geoff has been immersed in the excavation business since he was a boy. He’s involved in all aspects of day-to-day operations from building and maintaining an experienced team of heavy equipment operators to helping his father manage the day-to-day operations. Dave Wright is now one of Ottawa’s leading excavation companies.

The team at Dave Wright Excavating take great pride in keeping their customers happy, maintaining their equipment, and completing construction jobs on time and on budget.
