In 1959 Frank and Laverne Twehous started Frank Twehous Excavating Co, Inc. with a single Caterpillar D6 bulldozer. With an office in their home, they began to build their business. Soon, with hard work and dedication, they outgrew their original location and moved to a small shop in Taos, MO. They eventually built a new facility off Highway 50 East on the outskirts of Jefferson City, MO. The business expanded to include such services as blasting, demolition, heavy haul trucking, utility construction, concrete construction and more.

Today Twehous Excavating has grown into one of Mid-Missouri’s premier excavating companies. We’ve built a team of experienced professionals and a reputation of excellence in the industry. Now, over 60 years later, we have approximately 100 employees including the second and third generations who have joined the family business. With a family atmosphere and an honest, hardworking way of doing business, we have developed lasting partnerships with our clients and continue working with them long after their projects are complete. The willingness to be flexible, adaptable, and sometimes even creative, to complete the project sets Twehous Excavating apart from our competition.

We are celebrating 65 years of success and look forward to continued growth in the future. We invite you to utilize our expertise and call us for any of your project needs. We would like to thank our many loyal customers who we have served through the years and look forward to developing new relationships for years to come.
