Who We Are

Erickson Excavating of Cumberland, Inc. is a dedicated workforce focused on providing cost-effectivequality service. We deliver safelyefficiently and on time.


In 1971, prior to graduating from University of Wisconsin Stout, Mark Erickson purchased his first backhoe. With his mind set on funding his college education, Mark worked during his summer breaks from college digging basements and completing small grading jobs. With a foundation of hard work, determination, a strong commitment to honesty and quality workmanship, it wasn’t long before Mark began making a name for himself in Northwest Wisconsin.

At Erickson Excavating of Cumberland, Inc., our work can range from delivering a load of gravel for your driveway to completing an industrial site preparation. We work hard to give our customers a quality product at a fair price, no matter what size the job.  With the support of his late wife, Nancy, and a strong foundation of ideals, Mark, his sons and his crew have expanded the business to uphold quality of service and meet local demand.


A force to be reckoned with.

with every project


Erickson Excavating embraces new technologiestechniques in order to provide our customers with a safer,more efficient, and cost-effective construction project.

Utilizing state-of-the-art CAD and 3D modeling software, our job sites are designed and virtually modeled in our office before any machines hit the ground. This process is a benefit to your project for multiple reasons:

  • Allows for possible conflicts/problems in proposed grade-plans to be discovered and addressed, before work begins – avoiding lost time and money associated with potential rework.
  • Pre-building 3D models of job sites allow customers to visualize the finish grade contours of their project, before work begins.
  • Our design-build capabilities allow customers the option to plan their existing project, and also plan for the future as well. Future building additions, parking, storm ponds, manure storage, feed pads – can all be planned in advance.

Investing in and maximizing the power of technology is a cornerstone at Erickson Excavating. Our GPS machines equipped with automated machine control, allow our skilled and experienced operators to run a job site more efficiently and cost-effectively from the seat of their machine.

  • Traditional grading with stakes scattered throughout a job is a thing of the past.
  • Safer job site with reduced need of ground personal associated with stake setting.
  • Improved finish grade accuracy and reduced cost by placing material one time and on-grade.
  • GPS laser-augmented machines allow for extremely accurate and efficient grading in tight-tolerance situations .
