“It comes with great pleasure for us to write this letter. Cocalico School District has experienced many construction projects in the past, with both ease and difficulties. We just wanted to express our gratitude to Horst Excavating for making our roads and fields project one of the best.

Horst Excavating is probably the best excavating company and/or contractor we have ever had the pleasure to work with. A major factor contributing to this positive experience was your site superintendent, Joe Heiser, and project manager, Jason Hess, who made this tightly scheduled project a huge success.

Joe Heiser and Jason Hess are two of the most skilled, dedicated, cooperative, and polite construction leaders we have experienced. Joe’s skills, organization, and personality in the field, along with Jason’s office skills and site visits, were the leading elements in making this project so successful. We would also like to recognize the equipment operators, along with your office team, who showed dedication, professional attitudes and skills.

We, as the “Cocalico Construction Team,” want to express our gratitude for a job well done! The quality work your company has performed will offer many opportunities for students and the community to learn and enjoy for many years to come.”
