excavator

OWM Inc. brings to the industry a fresh approach in excavation and earthmoving. Our equipment operators are professionals who utilize proven efficient methods to complete the job, but are also creative individuals who take pride in their work.

We’re unique in the market place since we maintain significant focus on how we impact the environment at large as well as the specific job site where we’re working. By using plant based fuels and oils we’re able to work in fragile environments such as those in close proximity to wet lands without threatening those fragile eco-systems. We developed the following precepts that guide our organization to support stewardship of the environment.

    • We utilize modern equipment that complies with the most recent environmental standards for emissions.
    • We utilize bio-diesel to further reduce atmospheric impact.

    • We’re migrating all of our equipment to non-toxic hydraulic fluids to protect the job site and the greater environment from the significant cumulative effects of small hydraulic leaks or worse yet, catastrophic failure such as burst fittings, seals and hoses. This initiative protects run-off at job sites from the impact of petroleum chemicals.

We choose appropriate sized equipment for the job allowing us to take a more surgical approach rather than the typical “clear and haul” associated with the industry. Our tracked equipment is set up with wider tracks to improve flotation and reduce impact to the job site.
