About Jensen's Excavating

Our History

Jensen's Excavating was started in 1975 as Richard Jensen Hauling and Excavating in South Haven, MI. In the early days of the company Rick Jensen, along with his wife Sandy, and Don and Rob Mielke worked to grow the company in the South Haven area. The primary focus of the company during those years was on residential construction.

In 1985 the firm was incorporated as Jensen's Excavating. Throughout the late 1980's and into the early 1990's the company grew with more employees and began to engage in commercial and industrial work. In 1997 the company started recycling concrete and asphalt for use as road base and driveway material.

Jensen's Excavating has continued to grow over the years along with the South Haven area. Our focus today is on the local community, just as it was in the beginning, to provide the highest quality of service to exceed the expectations of our customers.
