History | Bloomsdale Excavating Company Inc.


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. They purchased new machinery and hired loyal employees who understood and shared their vision of combining teamwork, integrity and performance. As the years went by, Marvin’s six sons joined the family business.

The company continues to grow and thrive. It has expanded into general contracting, road building, and a wide variety of residential, commercial, quarry and mining, and heavy industrial projects.

Strong family values continue to define our culture. We appreciate the importance of the long-term relationships that have been built through the years in our business and community. Our goal is to offer our customers a quality experience and our staff an outstanding place to work and build their own legacy.
