Jeremy Hiltz Excavating currently has 13 jobs in progress throughout the state of New Hampshire.
One of the major jobs is the site development for a future Good Will store and retail plaza in Belmont, N.H. The job mostly entails large ledge exporting, crushing, trucking and directional drilling for a waterline installation. The job, which began in April 2015, is expected to be completed by September of this year. It currently has 15 employees on the site daily, and so far everything has been staying on schedule without unforeseen complications, according to the company.
One of the newest machines on the job site is a Sakai SV 540D soil roller, which was purchased from E.W. Sleeper in Concord, N.H.
“You can’t beat the specific dynamic compaction force accompanied with the other great features of this machine,” said Jeremy Hiltz, owner. “It enhances the operator’s comfort with the climate controlled cab and superb visibility, and the ECO compaction mode allows me to use 20 percent less fuel while meeting my productivity standards on the site.”
E.W. Sleeper and Jeremy Hiltz Excavating have been doing business together for many years. When it was time for Jeremy Hiltz to update his fleet to meet the Tier IV compliance regulations, it went without question to do business with E.W. Sleeper.
“My father was a client of Ed Sleeper in the ’70s, and I have continued on with the tradition. E.W. Sleeper is a family oriented business that provides impeccable customer service. Whether they are needed after hours or on the weekends, E.W. Sleeper’s staff follows-through with phenomenal support,” said Hiltz
Jeremy Hiltz Excavating Inc. offers a full range of construction services, including water, sewer installation for private, municipal and state projects, drainage, roadways and sitework. The company was established in 1996 and prides itself on providing customers, both private and public, with high quality, on-time, in-budget projects. The company covers both small and large projects throughout New Hampshire.
Hiltz started in the construction business as a young boy, working alongside his father at job sites. By the age of 26 he was ready to branch out on his own.
“People had seen me at work and they knew they could trust me,” said Hiltz, who nevertheless admits that he started “on a wing and a prayer” with only a pickup truck, and a rented excavator and dump truck.
Focusing on what he had experience in — commercial site work — he started getting enough jobs to allow him to buy his own equipment and hire workers.
Today, the company owns a total of 125 pieces of equipment, and is bidding on larger and larger jobs.
