It all started in the 1880’s when hans tobiason got on a ship from norway to the promise land
Young Hans Tobiason Started his career in excavation as an employee, Soon he was the Employer after founding his own excavation company. Hans grew his company and was one of the largest road builders around. Hans, together with his family, grandsons and others working with horse and mule team equipment completed numerous projects including many roads. Eventually the kids took over, then the grand-kids then branching off to more company’s through 4 generations. Most of us are still Excavating and Constructing and with the 5th generation in training, soaking up all that modern technology has to offer and applying to our day to day operations. Now with Hundreds of projects completed in North Texas we are still going strong and ready for more. after all, as the saying handed down over generations goes “a little dirt never hurt”.
