David breathed new life into that old bulldozer.

In 1980 David Chaves was inspired to resurrect his father’s old bulldozer, to create the beginning of a diverse and successful excavating business. Despite the fact that he only had one piece of equipment to start with, he had a clear vision of how he could fill a need in the area.

One piece of equipment at a time, he took that vision and developed this family run and operated company. Currently 4 of the 7 full-time employees are family members and the rest might as well be family, because they are considered as such. Their home office is located in Londonderry, Vermont and in addition, they have two gravel/stone pits: Arlington and Londonderry. Because of their large inventory of both equipment and products, they have been able to serve the regional ski areas of Stratton, Magic Mountain and Bromley as well as several town municipalities such as Winhall, Weston, Andover, Arlington, Londonderry, Peru, Landgrove to name a few.

David Chaves is proud of his team and of his trusted vendors and clients who have supported the growth of this company every step of the way.
