Meeting Comox Valley’s Excavation Needs

Edgett Excavating Ltd. (EE) is a locally owned and operated excavating company operating primarily in the Comox Valley region on the east coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The Comox-based firm provides high-quality site servicing, road building and utility upgrading. JREE has executed projects for many of the area’s municipal, commercial and infrastructure entities over the years.

In 1965 John R. Edgett began the excavation business as a sole proprietorship. JREE was incorporated in 1975, when John’s brother Ross joined the business. The company grew steadily, specializing in property development and municipal and civil infrastructure.

Bruce Henderson, operations manager for EE, joined the company in 1994 and became a share holder in the early 2000s. Prior to his role at EE, Henderson worked as a construction foreman and superintendent for several other Vancouver Island-based firms before settling in Courtenay with his family.

“EE is a local company with local hires,” says Henderson. “We have a good reputation and good rapport with the many people we work for, plus a lot of long-term employees.”
