Meet The Owners

Will Heykamp

Will Heykamp

Owner,

Founder & Lead Operator

Born and raised in Creston, Will has always called the Valley "home". Growing up in an entrepreneurial family, he spent many years working on job sites and at the family bakery. In 2004, he had the desire to start his own business locally and officially started W.H. Excavating.

With over 15 years of diverse experience, Will has worked more than 15,000 hours in machinery - specifically with excavators, skid steers, and dump trucks. He is proud to be involved in many community projects - past and present (with some highlighted in our Gallery).

As a family-owned and operated business, Will strongly believes it is important to give back to his community. W.H. Excavating supports programs like The P.A.R.T.Y. Program and youth activity/sport programs.

Contact Will today if you need support with your next project.
