HISTORY

Donald H. Funk  founded DH Funk & Sons in 1975, which eventually became a four member partnership with the addition of three of his sons, Dennis, Doug and Phillip. The focus of the company was on residential and agricultural excavation which led to commercial excavation. Donald’s home residence functioned as office and shop for approximately ten years. The expanded growth of the company required expanded facilities, prompting Donald to purchase fifty five acres at Route 30 and Prospect Road in 1984. Within one year a new shop and office were built to accommodate eighteen employees. At this time there were no more than ten pieces of equipment to perform the fieldwork. In 1990 DH Funk & Sons established a seven lot industrial subdivision along Prospect Road called Prospect Corporate Center, which necessitated the creation of a new road, Continental Drive. In 2003 Donald began to enjoy retirement, while still maintaining an active role in the company.

Due to continued growth, the need for a bigger office and shop was imminent. In 2007 DH Funk & Sons relocated to an entirely new facility across the street from its existing location on Continental Drive. This move was important to the expansion of the company. In 2009 DH Funk & Sons became a five-person partnership with the addition of Doug’s two sons, Brian and Jordan, and in 2014 Dennis’s son, Nathaniel, joined the partnership. 2015 marked the celebration of forty years of accomplishments, reputation and loyalty to employees and customers. Currently DH Funk & Sons employs about 75 full time workers and has a fleet of 175 pieces.
