Our Purpose

We move dirt with a higher purpose.

Moving dirt is in our blood.

Since focusing solely on earthwork, we’re grateful for the sense of purpose that dirt brings us. We see an amazing amount of potential in the sites we work on. At first, an undeveloped piece of land doesn’t look like much, but to us, it’s an opportunity to build and strengthen our communities.

The earthwork industry is our true calling. We believe our purpose in life is to help build infrastructure that enhances lives throughout the Midwest. With moral and ethical standards as our guide, we continue to look for opportunities to improve how we work. This provides better service to our clients, better relationships, and better lives for our families.

We see an honest and transparent approach to construction as extremely valuable. Our client’s and communities’ needs are important to us. Exceeding their expectations and building with their families in mind is why we do what we do.

Build with Purpose

We are a Christian-owned company. We believe we are called to be workers of purpose. We believe in striving to do better and build better each and every day. We strive to run our business based on moral and ethical standards for the Glory of God.

Practice Stewardship

We are thankful for the opportunities we have been given and we strive to practice selfless stewardship. We believe in giving back to those around us and sharing a portion of our profits to our surrounding communities, educational institutions, service organizations, and mission fields.

Your words Matter

We want our employees, clients, sub-contractors, and vendors to know that integrity and trust are vital parts of our success. We aim to be honest and transparent—always completing our work with integrity. We pride ourselves on being honest leaders. Our words are our promise.

We make it happen

We believe we are called to be hard workers. Regardless of size or scope, we always deliver results we can be proud of. We are thorough, courteous, and knowledgeable throughout all phases of a project from pre-construction to project close-out. There is always a way to make it happen.

foster relationships

People are our most important asset at Witech—and we are confident we have the best in the business. Fostering meaningful and lasting relationships between our team, our vendors, and our clients is vital to our business. We constantly ask how we can connect with others and add value beyond ourselves.

Respect others. Respect yourself

We respect one another, just as we respect ourselves. This means being considerate of our team, our clients, our families, and ourselves in our words and actions. We believe respect at its core is thoughtfully caring.

Safety is Everyone's Responsibility

Safety is not only a responsibility to ourselves but to everyone who cares for us. We can provide and serve our loved ones by working safely. We also have the responsibility of watching over those around us and ensuring they’re safe every day.

Remember where we came from

Moving dirt is in our blood. With a history in family earthwork businesses dating back into the 1940s, It is what we love to do. We acknowledge our past as we grow and move forward into the future.
In memory of Pete
Pete had a gift of reading people, inspiring laugher in those around him, and true selflessness.

About Us

The History of Witech

Since our humble beginnings as a small excavating and trucking company in 2001, we’ve continued to grow by building strong relationships.

Witech Company Inc. has come from a long tradition of earthmoving and trucking families. Witvoet Trucking Company Inc., founded in 1942 by Boyd Witvoet and later joined by brother Gerritt Witvoet, was a small trucking company serving the suburbs of Chicago and Northwest Indiana. After a few years as a reliable trucking service, the Witvoets expanded their company with heavy equipment to load their trucks and excavate. After many years of dependable service, this family company continued to grow.

In 1993, the company split into two: Witvoet Trucking and Witvoet & Company. Our President Tom Witvoet, grandson of Boyd Witvoet, continued to work at Witvoet Trucking for 8 more years.

In 2001, Tom Witvoet left the family business of Witvoet Trucking to start Witech Company Inc. along with his then two partners Darren Prince and Jeff Krygsheld. Striving to operate as honest, respectful and hard-working, Witech set out to be a company that the Chicagoland area could rely on.

Witech’s values brought continuous growth of experienced people, equipment and clientele. We soon became a full-service earthwork, mass grading, and excavation company capable of carrying projects from pre-construction through closeout.

This level of control lets us live out our faith and up to our core values of Moving Dirt With Purpose. Ultimately, when we say we’re going to do something, our clients know we mean it. This forms a true partnership, rather than just a contract. With relationships like this, respect for one another is a moral obligation.

No matter the size of our projects, we’ll always remember where we came from. It has truly set the precedent for how we operate today and inspires us to set a great example for future generations.
