Experience the Horst Value

For more than 125 years, the Horst name has been synonymous with high standards. Joseph Horst established that reputation in the late 1800s when he took on his first construction project. In 1961, Abram Horst Jr. and Clyde Horst – great-grandsons to Joseph – founded Horst Excavating. Although it started as an economical way to provide equipment and services for Horst Construction projects, the company soon grew to become a solid independent business venture.

The value you get with Horst Excavating is not only experience, safety, and the latest technology and equipment, but also in the integrity, quality, and attention to detail that we pour into each project we work on. We have built solid foundations for municipalities, commercial and industrial clients, educational facilities, residential communities, parks and athletic fields, environmental projects, and energy facilities throughout Pennsylvania and much of the Mid-Atlantic region.

Our clients count on us to provide efficient, safe, and high-quality sitework services that get their construction projects off to the right start. Whether we are brought in early to complete budgets and help in the design process, or just before the project kicks off – Horst Excavating is a partner you can count on to exceed your needs and expectations. We believe in the value of building relationships and doing the right things the right way.
