Our Journey Began in 1945

Our business was founded in 1945 by William Kammel, and we were incorporated and renamed Kammel Excavating, Inc. in 1959. Our founder was well known in the community as a fair and hardworking man, and our excavation company became the go-to for many residents. Bill Kammel's daughter and son-in-law Karen and Don Humm, as well as his other son-in-law Bob Glasglow, worked for the company, learning the trade from him.

Passed Down Through the Family 

After successfully leading the business for nearly 40 years, Bill retired, and Bob, Karen, and Don bought the business. In 1984, Karen and Don bought out Bob, and their daughter Donna Humm began working for our excavation company. Russell Flower joined the business the same year as a truck driver and equipment operator. Donna and Russell were married in 1986 and both continued to learn from and work for Don and Karen. In June of 1998, Donna and Russell purchased our excavation company. They continue to run operations today.
