Our History

Our History

Dibbits Excavating Limited is proud of our rich heritage. Respect for our history has helped build a solid foundation for today and excitement for the future.


Peter Dibbits started the company in April of 1970. With the purchase of his first tractor backhoe Peter began working in the Quinte area. Trusted for his hard work and integrity Peter  provided service to homebuilding and commercial contractors. 

Peter's son Joe joined the company in 1993 and was added as a partner in 1997. Looking for new opportunities the company has continued to grow and expanded into landscape supply in 2003.

To accommodate growth and expansion Dibbits Excavating Limited purchased a property in the municipality of Quinte West in 2009. A new office and shop facility was constructed in 2012 and the business was moved there in 2013.    

Quinte West is a great place to grow a business.  Thanks to the valuable customers that we work for and with, both the excavating and landscape supply divisions continue to grow. Stop by our yard, we look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
