J.R. Edgett Excavating is celebrating its 40th year of business in the Comox Valley.

Incorporated in 1975, the company has completed a variety of public and private projects over the years including site development for some of Courtenay’s largest retail centres such as Walmart, Home Depot and most recently the new Thrifty Foods complex.

We are proud to have a great group of local employees, many of whom have worked with the company for years.

We are also very thankful for the numerous lasting relationships with clients as many of our projects are for repeat customers. Our strong relationships with local municipalities, regional districts, BC Hydro and Defense Construction Canada reinforce local infrastructure and the region’s economy.

To celebrate our 40 years of success in the Comox Valley we wanted to give back to our great community. We jumped at the chance to sponsor the Symphony & Fireworks on July 4th as part of the City of Courtenay’s centennial celebrations.
