Litzau Excavating celebrates its 35 years of business
By Kristen Miller, Staff Writer
Litzau Excavating of Lester Prairie began 35 years ago in 1971 with just one backhoe. Now the business has grown to include excavators, skid loaders, and dump trucks to name a few.
Darian Litzau grew up in the business that his parents owned. After his father passed away in 1992, Darian and his mother Audrey took care of it until he finally bought it out in 2002.
“Customers still call and think they are talking to Audrey,” Darian’s wife Denise said, who has taking over the customer service and bookkeeping end of the business.
Litzau Excavating prides itself on providing good quality work at a reasonable price, Darian said.
Throughout the summer and winter, Litzau and his team work on a variety of jobs including digging basements, building driveways and roads, demolishing old buildings, site leveling and land clearing, snow plowing and more.
Recently, they have been busy working on the new Lester Prairie Clinic as well as other smaller jobs.
Last year, Litzau Excavating worked on Engelmann Dairy in Plato with their barn site and lagoon.
Litzau Excavating would like to thank their customers for all of the business they have given and because of that, they are celebrating 35 years in business.
Denise and Darian also thank his mother Audrey, for the time and effort she has put into the business.
