Our team at Independence Excavating has been performing industrial site development for over 40 years for clients such as Ford Motor Company, General Motors, LTV Steel, American Steel & Wire and Charter Steel. Our ability to perform many aspects of industrial construction allows Independence to better serve our customers. Our sister companies—Precision Environmental, Precision Pro-Cut and Indy Equipment—allow Independence to provide many additional construction services.

This multiple aspect capability means our customers can develop a new industrial construction project—from the initial site to complete foundations ready for steel erection or equipment installation—with the assistance of only one contractor, minimizing coordination and scheduling issues associated with multiple contractors. With the many services Independence offers, we can also provide one or multiple scopes of work on existing facilities or improvement projects, and react quickly to changes to the project.

We are a regional contractor currently licensed in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida and West Virginia, with the ability to perform work anywhere in the Eastern United States.

“We worked with Independence Excavating on the Charter Steel new steel mill project in Cuyahoga Heights, Ohio for over a year. They were flexible with our changes, provided timely and highly competitive pricing, met our multiple schedule requirements and exceeded our contractor expectations. Bottom line is whether we would use them again on demolition, site work and concrete work. The answer is YES, without a doubt.”
