Skiles Excavating began its journey like many other successful excavating companies—with a single individual, James Skiles, who brought with him over 20 years of equipment operating experience, a backhoe, and an ambitious dream. In 2006, he took the leap to create a business that would not only shape a better life for his family but also excel in the excavation industry.

Since then, we’ve made significant strides, building strong relationships with electrical contractors while undertaking excavating projects for underground utilities and concrete work. Our services quickly expanded to include plumbing excavation and small site projects, enabling us to diversify our expertise.

In 2018, we achieved the milestone of incorporation in Pennsylvania and are now proud to have a dedicated team of over 30 skilled employees. Our commitment to excellence and solid partnerships with contractors are the cornerstones of our success.


At Skiles Excavating, Inc., our passion lies in delivering top-tier excavation services. With our extensive experience, we have honed our skills to offer the finest solutions for our clients.
