Our History

It all began in 1974 when Louis J. Brongo, a hard working father of 8 children, made a life changing decision to get ahead in life.

Louis J. worked as a shovel operator for a company, digging basements for new homes. This is where he met a business partner, and the two invested in some equipment to work for themselves throughout Monroe County. They still concentrated on digging basements, but also started excavating land for farmers and digging trenches for sewer & water lines.

In early 1980, Louis R. Brongo joined the business, bringing experience from working with other local construction companies. After a few years (when the founding partners both decided to part ways) Louis J. and his son, Louis R., bought out the partner, officially making B-C Excavating, Inc, a family-owned business.

Louis R. started cutting and selling firewood at the young age of 13 to make some money. He noticed at job sites that the contractors wanted trees, brush and stumps either buried on site or hauled away.

Recognizing the opportunity to recycle wood into firewood, B-C Excavating, Inc. started offering land clearing services. As the demand for this service increased, our company focus shifted to land clearing. We purchased some specialized forestry equipment and started land clearing with the intent of recycling all the material from each job.

Three generations later…

This passion for land clearing certainly runs in our bloodline!
