Our History

Bloomsdale Excavating has a rich history that began more than 75 years ago. Marvin Drury founded the company after coming home from World War II, naming it for the southeast Missouri town in which it was located. He began excavating gravel from nearby creeks and delivering it to his neighbors who farmed the land.

Marvin’s brother Ralph Drury soon joined the company. Together, they followed opportunities as central and southern Missouri grew – drilling wells and installing public water supplies and sewage collection systems. (Read More)
