Gerke Excavating Inc has been operating for more than 65 years. In 1947, owner Allan Gerke purchased a dump truck and so began the family business. Allan’s sons, Richard and Paul, started working full time in 1963 and 1965. Richard and Paul took over the company in 1978 – by 1988 and 1993, Paul’s sons started working with the family as well.
